Wisconsin crash claims the life of woman

| Jul 16, 2014 | Fatal Motor Vehicle Accidents

Anyone who gets behind the wheel of a motor vehicle to drive could find that he or she is involved in an accident. While this is true, it is generally accepted there are certain demographics that are more likely to be involved in these types of incidents. Licensed drivers on either end of the spectrum–teens and the elderly–are included in these groups.

Individuals from both of these groups were involved in a deadly crash in Wisconsin earlier this month. A vehicle driven by a 16-year-old boy struck the car in which a 75-year-old woman was driving. The head on crash occurred after something caused the vehicle the teen was driving to cross the center line.

The force of the impact resulted in serious damage. The young man was flown to a hospital after being removed from his car and first transported to an area medical center. The nature of his injuries is not known. The woman in the other car did not fare as well however. She died at the accident scene.

While it is not known what caused the teen’s car to cross the road’s center line, it is known that neither speed nor alcohol played a role. While these factors commonly contribute to automobile accidents, there are other actions that could cause a crash to occur. The use of handheld devices such as smartphones are a temptation for many young drivers though even the act of reaching for something in a car could lead a car to drift into oncoming traffic.

An investigation into the matter will likely uncover the cause of the crash. Should negligence on the part of the teen driver be deemed to have played a role, it is possible that the family of the woman who died might file a wrongful death lawsuit against the driver.
