Fatal car crash subject of further investigation

Automobile accidents can be minor as in the classic fender-bender or they can be serious and even deadly. Either way, they typically happen in a flash and are never expected. The impact on Alabama drivers and their families when a serious motor vehicle accident occurs can be devastating. Whether at the hands of distracted driver, a negligent driver, unsafe road conditions or something else, the causes of a car accident are many.

The reason for a recent fatal auto accident near Opelika is being investigated jointly by Alabama State Troopers and the Lee County Coroner's Office. According to news reports, alcohol is not indicated to have been a factor and the two drivers involved in the car crash were both wearing safety belts at the time of the accident. A Toyota pickup truck broadsided another vehicle when its driver was attempting to make a left turn.

The driver of the pickup was apparently uninjured but the woman turning was killed at the scene of the wreck. The accident happened on a Sunday afternoon on U.S. Highway 29 and Lee Road 262. The blunt force from numerous injuries caused the 68-year old woman to die as a result. No other vehicles were noted to have been involved.

Such accidents indicate the need for continuous vigilance and safety. If you or someone you know or love become a car accident victim, sustain catastrophic injuries, death or other damage, you may consider speaking to an attorney to learn how to ensure your proper compensation.
