Alaska car accident ends in multiple fatalities

A tragic incident occurred recently on a roadway in Alaska. A car accident involving more than one vehicle resulted in multiple fatalities. A thorough investigation was reportedly launched following the terrible collision. Preliminary results state that all those involved were wearing proper seat restraints at the time.

It was nearing 3 p.m. on a recent Saturday when the accident took place. It happened on a road in Kenai. Apparently, a 34-year-old man was behind the wheel of the vehicle that appears to have caused the crash. While traveling, his vehicle allegedly veered off course into the oncoming lane of traffic.

Another man, age 63, was reportedly driving a sports utility vehicle in that lane. The first vehicle is said to have struck the second head-on. The massive crash resulted in the deaths of both motorists, who were each pronounced dead at the tragic scene.

An additional traveler who was riding as a passenger at the time also suffered injuries in the car accident. That person survived and was transported to an area hospital in serious condition for emergency care. There is obviously no adequate replacement for the loss of human life in a motor-vehicle collision. However, many families who have suffered similar losses in Alaska have gone on to file wrongful death claims in civil court when their loved ones' deaths were caused by the negligence of other drivers. In successfully litigated cases, court-awarded compensation has helped many grieving families pay for funeral expenses and cover other costs associated with the terrible tragedies they endured.
