Car wreck leads to 2 deaths, 2 injuries in West Virginia

A one-vehicle crash in West Virginia has led to two people's deaths, leaving family members of the two individuals in mourning. Two people also suffered injuries in the collision. The accident took place on a recent Monday. Police said none of the four individuals involved in the wreck were wearing safety belts at the time of the car wreck.

Police said the accident occurred when a vehicle was traveling down a road early one morning around 1 a.m. The automobile suddenly left the roadway on the road's eastern shoulder. It then collided with a tree.

The vehicle, which came to a rest on the passenger side, was carrying four people. The driver of the vehicle, a 19-year-old man, died in the crash. A 43-year-old passenger also lost his life. Meanwhile, two other passengers, ages 21 and 23, suffered injuries and were taken to the hospital by helicopter. Authorities continued to investigate the cause of the crash.

The two injured passengers have the right to file personal injury claims, seeking damages that -- if awarded -- may help them to cover their hospital expenses. In addition, the family members of the deceased passenger may opt to file a wrongful death lawsuit in this case. Though the driver of the vehicle who is believed to have caused the single-car accident ended up passing away in the car wreck, his estate may still be sued. Any separate owner of the vehicle might also face litigation. The court in West Virginia will ultimately determine claims for financial damages once liability is appropriately established.
