Fatal head-on collision in Wisconsin claims two, injuries three

The surviving victims of a deadly two-vehicle crash may seek compensation in the future from the person responsible for causing a head-on collision just days ago. Unfortunately, they will have to wait until police complete their investigation before taking the next steps in seeking justice for their injuries.

The crash happened in Waukesha County along Highway 16 when a vehicle travelling eastbound crossed into the westbound lanes of traffic and collided with another vehicle. Two people were reported to have been killed in the crash while three others were injured. One person is considered to be in critical condition at this time while the conditions of the surviving victims are unknown. The names of those involved in the crash have not been released at this time.

For detectives with the Waukesha County Sheriff’s Department, the upcoming days will be filled with answering many of the questions still surrounding the fatal accident. What caused the first car to cross over into oncoming traffic? Was alcohol a factor in the crash? Was the first driver distracted in anyway, perhaps by a cellphone or other technological device? Could mechanical failure have been a cause?

The answers to these questions will help determine whether the surviving victims will be able to seek compensation for their injuries in the future. As for the deceased victims, in which car they were travelling is unknown, answers from this investigation will also help family members decide if they want to file any civil claims down the road on behalf of their lost loved ones.
