Car accident in Alaska injures 2, kills driver deemed at fault

Car accidents that are serious enough can often leave the individuals involved with injuries, but if the collision is head on, the severity of the injuries can drastically increase. Typically, head on collisions leave those involved with serious injuries that can inhibit their ability to perform daily tasks, such as go to work. While this has obvious financial consequences for the victim, it can cause emotional pain as well. Unfortunately, one car accident in Alaska recently took the life of one person and left two others with serious injuries.

The two vehicle accident took place on the afternoon of July 10 at around 3:30 p.m. Initial investigation showed that the first vehicle, for unknown reasons, crossed the center line and struck the second vehicle. Emergency personnel arrived at the scene of the accident and pronounced the driver of the first vehicle deceased, while the two occupants of the second vehicle were transported to the hospital by helicopter.

The current condition of the two injured victims is unknown. All individuals involved were wearing seatbelts at the time of the accident. The collision is currently under investigation by Alaska police.

Despite the fact that the driver deemed to have been at fault was killed in the car accident, the injured individuals have the right to seek financial redress against his estate through our civil court system. Any compensation awarded could be used to pay for any of the hospital bills of the victims. This could allow them to focus on recuperating from their injuries rather than worry about where the money will come from to pay for their hospital and follow-up medical care.
