Kentucky motor vehicle accidents: 1 dead, 2 seriously injured

Kentucky drivers are likely to agree that when behind the wheel, it is important to avoid distractions, obey traffic laws and operate a vehicle as safely as possible. Surely, no one sets out on their journey anticipating a serious collision. Unfortunately motor vehicle accidents cannot always be prevented and, on some occasions, prove fatal for some. 

Recently, Kentucky police responded to the scene of a serious accident on KY 7. Upon arrival, they determined that the vehicle of a woman headed northbound somehow crossed the center line of the road and collided with an SUV traveling in the opposite direction. The SUV contained a driver and a passenger, who suffered injuries so severe they both had to be taken by helicopter to a local hospital for treatment.

Unfortunately for the other driver, she tragically suffered fatal injuries. She was pronounced dead at the scene. The collision remains under investigation, as law enforcement and emergency officials try to determine what caused the driver of the vehicle to drift into the oncoming lane. 

Motor vehicle accidents are a frightening possibility whenever people take to the roads. While some accidents result in minor damage and shaken nerves, others can result in injury, death and destruction. Victims and their families may find themselves at a loss for how to best proceed. Especially when death of a loved one is involved, medical bills, final expenses and legal proceedings may be confusing, especially in a time of such grief. In such cases, it can be beneficial to seek the assistance of an experienced attorney, who can often guide victims or their families along the road to recovery.
