Car wreck claims 1 life, leads to 3 injuries

A vehicle crash recently took the life of one woman in West Virginia. The car wreck occurred on a Wednesday evening. The woman who died in the accident was 26 years old.

According to police, the woman was driving north along State Route 28 at about 6 p.m. Her car suddenly breached the middle line of the road. As a result, her vehicle hit an oncoming car head on.

The woman was pronounced deceased at the crash scene. Meanwhile, the woman driving the other car, 39, suffered injuries and was transported to the hospital via helicopter. Two passengers who were riding in her vehicle were also injured and were taken to the hospital as well.

The injured 39-year-old woman and her two injured passengers may opt to file personal injury claims in this West Virginia car accident case. They have the right to seek the reimbursement of monetary damages stemming from the head-on car wreck. Even though the 26-year-old woman who reportedly caused the accident ended up dying as a result of the impact, her estate may be sued, and any other person with an ownership interest in the vehicle she was driving at the time of the crash may also be named a defendant in the lawsuit. Liability has to be established to the satisfaction of the civil court hearing the case before claims for monetary damages will be adjudicated. A monetary award in a successfully fought case may help to cover hospital costs, vehicle damage and other losses stemming from the wreck.
