With many car accidents, those involved are lucky enough to walk away with nothing more than a little bit of damage to their vehicle. However, there are incidents in which multi-vehicle accidents lead to serious injury or even death.
Recently, a four car collision in Baltimore killed one man and injured 12 others, including a 2-year-old girl. According to local officials, an Acura ran through a red light at an intersection, subsequently T-boning a Grand Marquis. One witness who was on the scene at the time of the accident said the Grand Marquis was hit so hard that it flipped over two cars. He added that the car was moving at a fast pace down Fulton Lanes, and “he just ran the red lights and he hit the gold car, the one trying to cross Presstman, and then the one crossing Presstman flipped over those two cars, and that’s how it ended up here.”
Police noted that the 26-year-old man driving the gold car was killed. Along with him, a female passenger was injured along with a 2-year-old girl.
This story goes a long way in showing just how serious car accidents can be. A driver was traveling at an unsafe speed, while breaking other laws along the way. As a result, one man was killed and many others, including a young child, were injured. It is horrifying accidents like these that usually lead to the victims contacting a personal injury attorney who can step in to answer their questions, protect their legal rights, and pursue compensation for the grieving families and injured victims.
