Car accidents: Head-on crash injures several, kills 1 in Montana

When a vehicle drifts into an oncoming lane of traffic, the chances that a potentially dangerous collision will take place increase substantially. Head-on car accidents tend to be some of the most devastating incidents that can occur, and the safety of those who encounter such negligence might be placed at risk in the process. A recent collision that took place in Montana has left several with injuries and claimed the life of a 34-year-old man.

Officers with the Montana Highway Patrol advised the incident took place at around 7 p.m. on a recent Monday. For reasons unknown, a driver lost control of a truck and crossed into the opposite lane of traffic before striking a nearby car head-on. A passenger in the car was transported to a medical facility for treatment of unknown injuries, while the driver reportedly died at the scene.

The driver and a passenger in the truck were also transported to the hospital for medical care shortly after the accident. Authorities have advised that an investigation into the incident has been initiated and that speed doesn't appear to have been a contributing factor. However, they have stated that they are investigating to determine if intoxication played a role in the collision.

Suffering serious injuries or losing family members in car accidents due to the actions of a negligent driver can be a difficult thing to accept. Those who experience such loss may wish to pursue accountability in civil court, and they could choose to retain the services of a personal injury attorney for assistance in the process. An attorney can examine the incident thoroughly and assist a client in Montana in pursuing the compensation entitled through a claim against the party deemed culpable.
