SUV driver hits motor home head on, kills one

While many regions in the country struggle with overly congested roads and a reputation for aggressive and unsafe drivers, Alaska is not generally regarded a place full of busy highways and reckless drivers. That, however does not mean that there are not serious motor vehicle accidents that happen in Alaska. It also does not mean that these accidents cannot be caused by the negligence of some drivers. Sadly, such realities abound regardless of traffic volume or location.

An example can be seen in the recent death of a man who was only 31 years old in a crash that happened early on a Saturday evening near the Denali Borough of Fairbanks. Few details are known about what may have precipitated the wreck but the man drove his sport utility vehicle directly into a motor home in the oncoming lane of traffic. The impact of the collision left both the SUV and the motor home so damaged that reports indicate they are totalled.

The 31-year-old man, a Fairbanks resident, died as a result. The motor home was driven by a 67-year-old man from Spokane, Washington. That driver was not injured although lost his vehicle and had to endure the trauma of a fatal accident. Whether drugs, alcohol, distractions or other factors, accidents can happen and change people's lives in a flash.

After experiencing a serious vehicle accident in Alaska, people may find it helpful to learn about their compensation options by talking with an experienced personal injury attorney.
