Two-car accident seriously injures drivers of both vehicles

Driving is a privilege, and all drivers who hold a valid driver's license have an on-going duty to take reasonable care when driving on roadways. It is important to obey all traffic laws, and be attentive. Despite these common sense rules, car accidents happen every day and cause injuries.

In fact, Arizona residents may find it to interesting to learn that a car crash near a local high school resulted in both drivers sustaining serious injuries from the impact. One of the drivers involved in the accident was a 17-year-old girl who was pulling out of the high school parking lot and leaving after attending a swimming competition when her vehicle hit.

The 17-year-old was struck by a 78-year-old driver of a Chevy Blazer, who t-boned her vehicle as she was pulling out of the schools parking lot. The accident is still under investigation but preliminary accident investigations indicate that the 78-year-old driver of the Chevy Blazer may have run a red light prior to slamming into the BMW being driven by the teen.

The driver's side of the BMW was caved in approximately two feet from the impact with the other vehicle which made it difficult for the emergency response team to extricate the driver from the vehicle. The force of the crash also caused significant trauma to the 17-year-old driver was transported to the hospital with serious injuries. The 78-year-old driver of the Chevy Blazer also sustained serious injuries in the car accident.

Injuries sustained in a car accident could be non-life threatening to serious. Regardless of the nature of injures, drivers who have sustained injures may want to hold a negligent driver responsible for not only one's injuries but also damages to the car. Since every case is different, it is important to obtain guidance in order to evaluate one's case to determine if filing a lawsuit is the way to go. This could help them recover compensation to cover expenses associated to the injuries and damages caused by the crash.
