Car accidents: Tragic Kentucky head-on collision results in death

Distracted driving has become a major concern to anyone who travels on the roads. News reports and studies indicate that many car accidents now occur because of distracted driving, whether it be from eating, cell phone use or distractions immediately around them in or out of the vehicle. It is unknown if a recent tragic Kentucky head-on collision resulted from distracted driving, but investigators are currently exploring the events just prior to the accident.

The accident occurred in the afternoon on a Kentucky highway between two vehicles traveling in lanes going the opposite direction. For unknown reasons, a 38-year-old female driver drifted across the center line and into the opposite lane of traffic. She collided her sedan with an SUV containing a driver and a passenger.

Sadly, the sedan driver's injuries were so severe that she did not survive to be transported to a medical facility. The 26-year-old driver of the SUV and passenger also suffered serious injuries. Rescue workers had the victims air-lifted to a nearby medical center. The investigation is pending.

In situations where a presumed negligent party may be deceased as a result of an accident, it can be confusing for victims to understand options to file a claim and/or file a personal injury lawsuit. When victims are able to survive serious injuries, they may face an unknown amount of time away from work, lost wages and experience expensive medical treatment. Kentucky personal injury attorneys can assist victims through the aftermath of similar car accidents. Depending on the circumstances, victims may choose to file a claim against the deceased person's insurance, file a personal injury lawsuit against the person's estate or file a claim against their own insurance.
