Mulitple car accidents result in 2 deaths, many injured

Recently, authorities responded to a non-urgent accident report on a Kentucky interstate. A simple accident with no reported injuries quickly multiplied into several car accidents. Not only were multiple vehicles involved, but many were injured and two deaths occurred.

As traffic is typically affected by incidents on the roadway, vehicles had come to a stop and backed up about a mile as authorities attended to the accident that reportedly involved no injuries. As a tractor-trailer approached the stopped traffic, the driver was unable to bring the truck to a stop. In the process, it collided with a pickup truck. The resulting impact also resulted in the driver swerving and colliding with multiple other vehicles. At least two of the vehicles caught on fire and were engulfed after the occupants were removed.

The first pickup truck was reportedly occupied by three sisters, and sadly, two died as a result of their injuries. One sister died before she could be transported for medical treatment, and despite being flown to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, another sister died as well. The occupants of many of the other vehicles involved in the chain reaction crash also suffered injuries as the tractor trailer's driver who began the serious of unfortunate events.

Kentucky personal injury attorneys who are familiar with tractor-trailer crashes may not be surprised by serious car accidents such as this one. In similar complicated accidents, victims and family members of deceased victims may be overwhelmed by the pain of physical injuries, the financial burden of medical expenses and/or the unexpected burial expenses. An attorney can review available evidence and advise victims of their options for legal recourse under the circumstances presented.
