Woman killed in wrong-way accident

Following traffic direction signs is important for those who choose to drive. Ignoring theses signs or not knowing what they mean can be dangerous. A local family is facing a tragic loss after an accident with a driver going the wrong way claimed the life of a woman. The car crash took place on Sept. 29.

A family of three was traveling home from New York when they were struck head-on on Roosevelt Boulevard. The family was in a van; the wrong-way driver was in a car. The accident occurred in the early morning hours, around 2:30 a.m.

After the collision, the father escaped the van with the 3-year-old daughter, then held his wife's hand until the first responders arrived. The man and child were not seriously injured, but the woman died from her injuries. She was 36.

The 23-year-old wrong way driver and her 24-year-old passenger were also injured. The extent of their injuries are unknown. No charges have been filed and law enforcement is continuing to investigate the accident.

This accident could have had a variety of causes, from a distracted driver who ignored the signs or a driver unfamiliar with the area who thought the off ramp was the on ramp. Whatever the reason for the accident, the family of the woman who was killed are within their legal rights to seek compensation for the loss of their loved one. The family could seek damages for pain and suffering, medical bills, final expenses and any other expenses that are related to the tragic accident.

Anyone who is in a similar experience could speak with a legal professional and learn about their options. Although a settlement or award will not bring back the deceased family member, it will ensure that the financial toll isn't as harsh it could be.
