Being involved in a head-on crash can be a scary and stressful experience. Car accidents that take place when a vehicle crosses into the wrong lane of traffic run a greater risk of leaving those involved with serious injuries and facing a long road to recovery. As many as six individuals were rushed to a medical facility following a recent multiple-vehicle crash that took place in Montana.
The accident reportedly took place on a recent Saturday morning and involved three vehicles. Initial investigations indicate that it occurred when the driver of a southbound vehicle suddenly drifted across the median and struck a second vehicle. The driver of a motorcycle was reportedly unable to stop in time to avoid the crash and proceeded to collide with the second vehicle shortly thereafter.
Law enforcement agents have advised that six individuals suffered injuries in the crash, each of whom was transported to a nearby hospital for medical care. According to reports, three of those involved are being treated for severe injuries. While an investigation into the crash is underway, no further information was provided as to what might have caused the driver of the first vehicle to drift into oncoming lanes.
Individuals who suffer serious harm in car accidents may face a variety of hardships in life, physical and financial alike. Following the crash, a person in Montana could choose to speak with an attorney for guidance on his or her available options for legal recourse. An attorney can assist a client in pursuing the full amount of restitution deserved through a personal injury claim against the party or parties deemed responsible.
