Alaska woman dies from car accident injuries

An accident occurred over a recent weekend involving an SUV and a taxi. An Alaska woman was killed in the car accident and others injured. Authorities are still investigating the crash.

The crash took place on a recent Friday evening at an intersection. According to reports, a 35-year-old driver of an SUV did not stop at a stop sign and crashed into a taxi that was carrying two adult female passengers and a young child. The passengers who were in the taxi were transported to the hospital, where it was apparently revealed that there were no life-threatening injuries. Authorities visited the hospital where they were informed that an initial assessment of one of the female passengers determined that she did not have serious injuries.

However, just hours later, one of the women died at the hospital. The Medical Examiner's Office is performing an autopsy. The other driver was transported to the hospital for minor injuries and was cited for failing to stop at a stop sign.

A car accident can be overwhelming for most people, especially when it's fatal. Depending on the outcome of this continuing investigation, the family of the deceased victim could have the right to file a wrongful death claim against the driver of the SUV. The other victims who were injured have similar rights under our personal injury laws to seek recovery of financial damages. The civil court system in Alaska typically adjudicates these types of claims based upon evidence that the injuries and/or death were caused by the negligence of another party.
