Car accidents: 5 members of family killed in collision

As most kids were anticipating a fun night of trick or treat and accumulating large amounts of candy, one Kentucky family was planning five unexpected funerals. Any time car accidents occur, it can result in serious property damage, injuries and, as in this case, death. Surviving family members are often overwhelmed with the aftermath that follows a fatal accident.

The details of the events that proceeded the accident are still unclear and are pending the investigation. The only survivor remains in the hospital after suffering serious injuries. Authorities report that the evidence has to be sorted through to determine what may have resulted in the accident. It is believed that the 57-year-old man driving an SUV drove into the lane of the family's car, resulting in the head-on collision.

The other vehicle in the accident was a sedan operated by the 26-year-old father of three. The mother of his children was also in the car with him. The children and their parents did not survive the crash despite wearing safety belts. Understandably, the community was impacted by the loss of an entire family at one time. Grief counselors were expected to help children at the school cope with the loss of three classmates.

Unexpected death for any family is traumatic, but the loss of five family members at one time is incomprehensible. The surviving family members surely have a lot to process. Additionally, five funerals may be difficult for a family to finance. Kentucky personal injury attorneys can assist family members through the aftermath of similar car accidents on how to handle insurance claims or a wrongful death lawsuit in civil court when applicable.
