2-vehicle crash claims 3 lives

Sometimes, drivers in Michigan feel the need to speed. Perhaps they are running late or just don’t like to drive the posted speed limit. Whatever the reason, speeding drivers endanger the lives and safety of everyone on the road, and they can cause serious car accidents that have devastating results. Such seems to be the case in a recent collision between two vehicles in Dickinson County.

Accident details

Around 3 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 30, a Ford Taurus was traveling along Foster City Road. At the same time, a Buick Rendezvous was approaching in the opposite direction. For reasons unknown, the Taurus crossed the center line and collided with the Buick.

Two occupants in the Taurus, reportedly from Felch, died at the scene. The driver of the Buick also died, and a female passenger in the car received treatment for injuries not considered life-threatening. The report mentioned that two children suffered injuries, but it didn’t specify which vehicle the children were riding in. One child suffered critical injuries and was airlifted to a hospital nearby.

Right to compensation

Authorities did not release the names or ages of the victims, but they did say that speed appears to be a factor in causing the crash. Although the driver of the Taurus who allegedly caused the wreck died at the scene, his or her estate can still be named in any civil suits that arise from the injured victims or the surviving family of the deceased victims. In order to understand their options and increase their chances for success, affected parties will want to work closely with an experienced personal injury attorney in Michigan.
