Car accident in Alaska sends 2 to hospital

Traffic signs are put in place across the United States to help drivers safely navigate the roads that intertwine across the United States, but when these signs are ignored, it can have detrimental consequences for those involved. The negligent driving that is required to totally ignore a traffic sign can quickly create dangerous situations that can turn into severe accidents in an instant. Unfortunately, one car accident in Alaska recently caused several people to acquire major injuries.

The accident took place on the afternoon of July 2 just after 12 p.m. and involved two motor vehicles. Initial investigations showed that the driver of the first vehicle ran a stop sign and struck the second vehicle in the intersection. This caused the second vehicle to drive down an embankment before coming to a complete stop.

The driver of the second vehicle suffered a laceration to the head, while the passenger in the first vehicle suffered a concussion from the accident. The two victims were taken to the hospital, but their current conditions were unknown at the time of this report. The driver of the first vehicle was issued a citation by Alaska police for running the stop sign.

The injured victims of the car accident may have the right to seek monetary compensation for the injuries that they received from the accident. Compensation could be used to pay for any of the hospital bills from their treatment. This could allow the victims to focus on healing their wounds and returning to their normal routines instead of worrying about unexpected bills.
