High-speed chase leads to fatal car crash in Foley

Even the safest of drivers, and their passengers, can be greatly affected by the actions of other motorists on the roadways. Distracted and negligent drivers can easily cause motor vehicle accidents with unsuspecting, safe drivers by not paying attention to the motorists around them and disregarding street signs and traffic laws. When another driver's actions result in a car accident, the consequences can range in severity from little or no damage to the vehicles to serious injuries or death.

According to reports, a high-speed car chase led to a recent fatal auto accident in Foley. The man being pursued by authorities reportedly collided with an uninvolved motorist after running a red light. The uninvolved driver, who was on his way home from the convenience store where he worked, was pronounced dead upon arriving at a local hospital.

It was reported that the pursuit began after law enforcement responded to calls of a driver operating his vehicle erratically and at high speeds through local apartment and shopping center parking lots. Following the car accident, the man was reportedly taken into custody and charged with manslaughter, however, the investigation is ongoing and could result in additional or elevated charges.

Losing a loved one in an auto accident can be devastating for the family members who are left behind. While nothing can bring a person back, compensation may provide some assistance. It may be helpful for anyone who finds him or herself in this type of situation to speak with an attorney to learn more about their rights and the options available.
