1 killed, 1 injured in high-speed Mobile car accident

Despite posted speed limits on the roads of Jasper, and other localities, excessive speed is often a contributing factor to car accidents. Greater rates of speed increase the force of impact in these types of collisions. As a result, it is very common for drivers, and their passengers, to suffer serious injuries and, in some cases, even death.

It appears that speed may have contributed to a fatal car accident that occurred in Mobile recently. According to reports, a car that was travelling eastbound on Interstate 10 was hit by a pick-up truck traveling in the same direction. The truck was reportedly being driven at a high speed, but it was not reported exactly how fast the vehicle was traveling, nor was it indicated whether the truck driving faster than the posted speed limit.

The impact reportedly caused the woman who as killed to be ejected from the vehicle. The 24-year-old was thrown from the car’s rear window. It was reported that a 14-year-old child also sustained injuries in the car crash, but it was not indicated whether the teen was in the car or truck. Furthermore, no additional information was detailed regarding the child’s specific injuries or condition.

When people are injured, or lose loved ones, as a result of motor vehicle accidents, they may be entitled to financial compensation for damages resulting from the wreck. This can include pain and suffering, medical expenses and funerary costs. In order to learn more about their rights, it may be of benefit for people who have had this type of experience to discuss their situation with an attorney.
