The three passengers in the Civic were all seriously injured. Two of them died at the hospital and the condition of the third is unknown. The Sierra driver was unhurt. The driver in the Civic had his seatbelt on, but his passengers did not.
No charges have been made yet in the case, nor is it clear who caused the accident from the news article. Once the investigation is complete, then the police and the insurance companies will have to decide what to do next.
If you are involved in an auto accident, even if you have insurance, it doesn’t hurt to contact a personal injury attorney. There may be legal options you don’t know about. A personal injury attorney can also help you negotiate with the insurance companies if they won’t pay enough for your needs.
We hope that the case is settled soon and that the families of the injured and deceased can move on swiftly from this tragedy.
