Head-on car accidents can lead to critical injuries in Indiana

While any kind of collision can lead to damages and injuries for drivers and passengers, a head-on car accident can be particularly devastating for victims. Car accidents on Indiana roadways which lead to injuries or worse can lead to criminal charges and also civil suits as victims need to seek compensation after a crash. One recent car accident in Indiana led to injuries for both drivers and the crash remains under investigation.

The car accident occurred on a Thursday afternoon as one car was driving west. The 36-year-old woman was driving a Buick westward when she went across the center line for some reason. Her Buick then collided with a Volkswagen Jetta driven by a 27-year-old man. The cars collided head-on.

The driver of the Volkswagen Jetta was flown to an area hospital for treatment of injuries. The other driver was taken to another hospital for treatment. The driver who was flown from the scene was said to be critical condition. The accident is under investigation as authorities try to understand what caused the accident.

An investigation into car accidents of this nature may decipher who is responsible for the incidents. If one driver in this Indiana crash is found to be culpable, the other driver may have cause to file a personal injury suit in an Indiana civil court. A successful personal injury suit can yield monetary damages that can help a victim deal with the financial strain of an accident, such as medical bills, lost wages and the cost of on-going treatment.
