Intersections are notoriously dangerous areas of most roadways. Even if these areas are controlled by traffic lights or stop signs, it is all too easy for just one driver to disregard the signal and cause a serious car accident that affects the lives of many. Often, collisions that take place at intersections can lead to serious injuries and other lasting effects for those involved.
It was recently reported that a crash in Texas resulted in four individuals being transported to the hospital. Apparently, two motorcycles were traveling north, and a passenger car was traveling west when all three vehicles collided at an intersection. Details on what causes may have contributed to the accident were not given in the report, but it was noted that the investigation was still underway.
Unfortunately, the incident resulted in four individuals suffering serious injuries and being transported by ambulance to area hospitals. The following information regarding the parties involved was provided:
- A 24-year-old woman was driving the car.
- A 36-year-old man was driving one motorcycle.
- A 45-year-old man was driving the other motorcycle.
- A 41-year-old woman was reported as being a passenger, but it was unclear whether she was a passenger in the car or on one of the motorcycles.
Depending on what information the investigation uncovers, it is possible for this car accident to result in personal injury claims. If the driver of the car is considered at fault, the motorcyclists and passenger may have reason to file such claims in order to seek compensation, or the car driver could file a claim if one of the motorcyclists is considered at fault. Such claims could allow the applicable injured parties to seek compensation for damages permitted under Texas law.
