No one expects they will be involved in a car accident but, unfortunately, accidents can happen to anyone at any time. Most car accidents are just minor fender-benders, but sometimes they can cause serious property damage and injuries.
According to reports, a serious multi-car accident occurred recently in Cary. Two people were taken to the hospital after the crash, which occurred near Aviation Parkway on I-40. A Toyota Scion was speeding and driving recklessly when it hit a Chevrolet van. The driver of the Scion lost control of the vehicle and it came to rest on the left lane of the interstate. The Chevrolet van pulled over as well.
Another driver slammed on their brakes to avoid hitting the accident scene and that car was rear-ended by a tan car that drove away from the scene. A fifth car hit the back of the car and pushed the car into the Scion. Two people were taken to a local hospital for injuries. The driver of the Scion was charged with driving without a license, reckless driving and driving while impaired.
Car accidents affect families every day in North Carolina and across the U.S. If a family believes their loved one was injured in an accident due to no fault of their own, they may want to get more information about personal injury legal options. Doing so can help victims review the circumstances surrounding the accident, including the police report and witness reports. It is important to determine who was at fault. A victim may be eligible for compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages and other damages.
