Car accidents: 1 injured, 1 killed in recent collision

Prior to making a left turn across lanes of traffic, drivers have a duty to ensure there is sufficient space and time to navigate such a maneuver. Those who turn into the path of oncoming traffic may leave other drivers with little time to react, and car accidents that take place under similar circumstances can have devastating results. One person has died and another suffered injuries in a recent accident in Montana.

Authorities say they received reports of a two-vehicle crash on a recent Monday afternoon. According to initial investigations, the accident took place as the driver of a northbound vehicle was attempting to navigate a left turn. The driver of an oncoming car was unable to react in time to avoid collision and struck the first vehicle shortly thereafter.

Police advised that a passenger in the car suffered fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene. They have also stated that the driver of the car suffered severe injuries in the crash. While an investigation into the incident has been initiated, it remains unclear why the driver of the first vehicle may have failed to allow sufficient space and time to navigate the turn.

Dealing with the fallout of dangerous or fatal car accidents can be a harrowing process. Those who suffer severe injury or loss due to the negligent actions of another driver could benefit from obtaining legal counsel for advice in understanding their available legal avenues. By retaining the services of an attorney, a client in Montana could become better prepared to pursue the full amount of compensation entitled through a claim against the party deemed at fault.
