Motor vehicle accidents: Crash at infamous intersection injures 1

Intersections that do not come equipped with traffic signals and signs can be hazardous areas. While these may be few and far between, they still exist, and when drivers fail to use caution upon approaching such an intersection, the results of subsequent motor vehicle accidents could prove disastrous. A recent collision that took place at an intersection in Oregon has left one person with serious injuries.

The incident is said to have taken place on a recent Wednesday morning as a woman was approaching an intersection that locals reportedly consider infamous. According to police, witnesses say that a tractor-trailer clipped the rear-end of a flatbed truck while attempting to navigate a left turn. The impact of this crash forced the truck to strike the woman's car head-on, causing both vehicles to roll down a nearby embankment.

Upon arriving at the scene, emergency responders say they found the woman trapped within her vehicle. After rescuing her form within, they proceeded to rush her to a medical facility for treatment of severe injuries. Authorities have advised that they have plans to install a traffic signal at the intersection in the coming months, but until this occurs, the area could still prove to be hazardous.

Those who suffer serious injuries in motor vehicle accidents due to another party's negligent actions may wish to know more about the next steps to take to pursue restitution. Since the civil justice system can be complex, a person in Oregon could benefit from retaining the services of an attorney for guidance on the available options for legal recourse. An attorney can examine the incident and assist a client in pursuing the full amount of compensation entitled through a personal injury claim.
