Car crash leads to 1 death, 2 injuries

One man in West Virginia recently lost his life in a vehicle accident. The accident took place on a Monday night. The man who died in the car crash was 53 years old.

The car crash involved two vehicles. It was initially unclear what caused the head-on crash. The man who died was in one of the vehicles involved in the collision.

The other automobile involved in the crash featured both a driver and a passenger who suffered injuries. They were taken to a local hospital by ambulance. The roadway where the crash took place was closed down for a few hours while the crash scene was cleaned up. Police continued to investigate the collision.

A police investigation may determine which party was at fault in the car accident. If the injured driver is deemed to have caused the car crash, this driver may face a wrongful death claim filed by the surviving loved ones of the man who passed away in the crash. Meanwhile, if the deceased man is found to have been driving and caused the accident, the legal estate of this individual may be held liable for the other two accident victims' injuries; anyone else who maintained an ownership interest in the vehicle that reportedly caused the accident may also be named as a defendant in the civil claim in this situation. Financial restitution from a case that is successfully litigated may help to cover accident-related costs, such as funeral costs, medical expenses and other losses stemming from the accident in West Virginia.
