Ketucky car accidents: tragedy struck during eclipse

The recent solar eclipse had many Kentucky residents in awe as they viewed the rare and infrequent occasion that occurred from coast to coast. Many residents took to the streets, pausing work, school and other routine activities to view the event. Warnings were issued to drive with caution during the event in an effort to prevent car accidents due to distraction from the eclipse. Sadly, two observers were struck by a car during the event, and it ended tragically.

Reportedly, two women worked at a nearby clinic and decided to view the event on their lunch break when the accident occurred. It is believed that the 38-year-old driver crossed over the center line. Her vehicle hit a utility pole before hitting the women with her vehicle.  At this time, it is unknown what events precipitated the crash, but routine toxicology tests were performed.

Sadly, all three women were injured. The 23-year-old pedestrian tragically died before she could be medically treated. Her 41-year-old co-worker was flown to a medical center and remains there for treatment. The driver as well suffered serious injuries as a result of the crash. The clinic where the pedestrians were employed closed for the week as employees coped with the unexpected loss.

Car accidents may occur for numerous reasons and may result in injuries, property damage and sometimes death. Victims who suffer injuries may experience years of medical treatment and could suffer permanent damage. Families who suddenly lose a loved one may be financially stressed after funeral expenses quickly accumulate. Personal injury attorneys in Kentucky can advise victims of accidents, including the surviving families of deceased victims, of possible legal options to pursue recovery of financial losses.
