Another wrong way auto accident kills one, injures another

A wrong way crash on Interstate 80 left one person dead and another person seriously injured and having to be flown by helicopter to a nearby hospital. Sadly, this is not the first time this blog has reported on a recent wrong way accident in the Reno area.

Police say that they received reports of someone driving the wrong way on the interstate a few minutes before the crash occurred. They were not able to respond in time to prevent what some might have seen as inevitable car accident. The driver eventually struck another motorist who was traveling with the flow of traffic head on

The person who was driving the wrong way died in the crash. Another person, the driver of a Tahoe, suffered serious injuries and had to be life flighted from the scene to get immediate medical assistance. Authorities are still investigating the crash and have asked the public to come forward with any information they may have about it.

When people are involved in a car collision caused by a negligent driver who died in the crash, there might be some question as to whether they can still pursue claims for compensation. The answer to this question is often "yes," but it may entail having to sue the estate of the driver in order to access any available insurance proceeds.

Other means of pursuing compensation may also be available to the injured driver. Drivers injured in wrong way crashes should consider evaluating legal options with the help of a personal injury attorney, as they will likely have substantial medical bills and may also be out of work for a long time.
