Kentucky car accidents: Women injured in head-on collision

Every day people's lives have the potential to change in an instant. Unfortunately for some, it is not always a good change. Instantly, car accidents can result in serious injuries that can require a life-time of medical treatment and therapy. Sadly, others are fatal. Two women in Kentucky are finding out first hand how much their lives can quickly change after a recent accident.

During a recent morning commute, a 41-year old woman was driving eastbound on a Kentucky highway when the collision occurred. It is unknown what events preceded the accident, but the woman reportedly crossed over the center line into westbound oncoming traffic. She then struck a westbound vehicle occupied by an 80-year-old driver and her two passengers. The resulting serious accident required the highway to be closed for a short period of time as emergency workers attended to the victims.

The women were trapped in their vehicles and both were critically injured. Each was flown out of state for specialized medical treatment. It is unknown if they are expected to survive their injuries. The older woman's passengers suffered injuries, but were able to be treated at the scene of the accident by emergency medical technicians. Although the investigation is not complete, charges are expected to be filed.

Unfortunately some car accidents, such as this one, are more than just a fender bender and cause serious and sometimes fatal injuries. Serious injuries often result in expensive medical treatment and long-term health problems. Apart from any criminal charges, drivers  deemed responsible can be sued for personal injuries or wrongful death in civil court. Kentucky lawyers can advise and assist accident victims, including the surviving families of deceased victims, about the steps required to pursue legal recourse.
