Anchorage motor vehicle accident leads to fatalities and injuries

A serious motor vehicle accident occurred in Anchorage in early April, involving three vehicles and four victims. Two of them died at the scene of the incident, and two required medical attention. The details of the motor vehicle accident that have been released thus far demonstrate how one moment can radically change lives.

The incident took place on Glenn Highway, one of the most regularly traveled routes for the residents of Anchorage's suburbs. Late on a Friday afternoon, a 38-year-old male driver operating an SUV lost control and struck another vehicle traveling in the other outbound lane. The collision propelled the SUV across the median and into the path of inbound traffic.

At this point, the vehicle crashed head on into another SUV driven by a 25-year-old male. After responders came to the site of motor vehicle accident, they determined that both male drivers had died as a result of the impact. Their passengers, however, were still alive but in need of medical attention. In fact, the wife of the second driver was flown to a medical facility for treatment of the life-threatening wounds she sustained.

The collision is being investigated by Anchorage authorities. In the meantime, the loss has delivered devastating blows to two families, especially the second driver's family. Not only was he killed, but his wife was left struggling for her life and his son also suffered minor injuries. It is cases like this one that lead many motor vehicle accident victims to seek compensatory damages through personal injury lawsuits. A court award or settlement can help families recover financially from the many expenses directly related to accidents, such as medical expenses and loss of income.
