Car crash leads to 2 injuries, 1 death in West Virginia

Two people were recently injured in a recent head-on crash in West Virginia. Another person died in the car crash. The tragic wreck took place along West Virginia 9.

According to authorities, the accident took place at around 5:30 p.m. on a Monday. Police said the 58-year-old woman was driving a car at that time. All of a sudden, the car breached the road's middle line and ended up striking a van.

Both the woman and two other people, who were passengers in the van, suffered injuries in the crash. They were taken to the hospital, with the 58-year-old woman being transported to the hospital by helicopter. The woman died at the hospital; the conditions of the other two crash victims were not immediately known.

If police find that the woman who died was at fault in the car crash, the two van passengers who were injured may decide to file personal injury claims against her estate. Civil claims may also be filed against any separate owner of the car she was operating at the time of the head-on accident. The injury victims have the right to seek the reimbursement of monetary damages sustained in the crash, such as hospital expenses and even the loss of wages as well as other costs tied to the crash. Competent proof of negligence is required to establish liability in these types of court cases. Liability has to be established to the civil court's satisfaction before claims for financial damages will be adjudicated by a judge in West Virginia.
