People Trapped In Cars After Three-Vehicle Accident
Late night crashes can happen for many reasons, including low visibility, drunkenness, fatigue, and distraction. Many evening crashes also involve higher speeds because there are fewer cars on the road. Three cars were tangled up in a crash last night in Dallas. NBC reports.
Dallas Fire Rescue was notified of a crash that happened at Simpson Stuart Road and Bonnie View Road. Three vehicles were involved in the incident, which happened just before midnight. People were pinned inside of their vehicles from the force of the crash. The victims were taken to a local hospital. One person died of their injuries. The police are continuing their investigation.
The force of the crash must have been quite strong to cause people to get pinned like this. Most modern cars are designed to crumple up in ways that still leave the passenger compartment free so people can escape. This can save lives in the case of a fire after an accident. But these safety features are not foolproof.
If you are injured in an accident, the first thing you need to do is to seek medical attention. The second thing is to file a report with the police and exchange insurance information with everyone involved. Then, contact a personal injury attorney for further advice. They can help you get compensation you truly deserve from the insurance companies.
