Car accidents: 2 killed in speed-related collision in Montana

Driving at high speeds can be hazardous enough as is and only becomes more dangerous during times of adverse weather. Car accidents that take place at excessive speeds can have cataclysmic results, and similar incidents may place the lives of everyone involved in jeopardy. Two individuals have died in a recent accident involving several vehicles in Montana.

Law enforcement agents advised the accident took place on a recent Monday night during times of icy road conditions. According to reports, the driver of a car lost control after hitting an icy patch while traveling at a high rate of speed. The car proceeded to enter the wrong lane of traffic and struck a tractor-trailer, subsequently forcing the truck to collide with a third vehicle shortly thereafter.

Both the driver and a passenger in the first car were ejected from the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene. The Montana Highway Patrol has initiated an investigation into the crash and says that speed appears to have been a contributing factor. Passengers who ride with a driver who operates at excessive speeds may have little control over what happens next, and they could be the ones who suffer the consequences.

Families who lose loved ones in car accidents that occur due to the negligent decisions of another party may wish to know more about the legal avenues available to them. Since the civil justice system can be complex, a person could benefit from consulting with an experienced attorney for guidance on how to proceed. An attorney can examine the incident and assist a client in Montana in pursuing restitution through a claim against the party deemed responsible.
