No motorist knows what he or she may face when buckling up and hitting the road. Most crashes and wrecks are completely unpredictable, so it is easy to feel vulnerable when driving near other vehicles. Many times, serious or fatal car accidents in Louisiana happen because of a driver’s carelessness behind the wheel.
Details of a deadly accident
Recently, a woman lost her life in a two-vehicle wreck in Tangipahoa Parish. The accident happened around 10:30 a.m. at the very busy intersection of Louisiana Highway 1061 and Louisiana Highway 140. According to accident reports, a pickup truck ran a stop sign and drove into the busy intersection. Reports said the pickup truck collided with an SUV, causing the SUV to flip over.
Tragically, authorities said the driver of the SUV was ejected from her vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene of the crash. Reportedly, the driver of the pickup truck was not injured in the accident. Police said the accident is under investigation and possible charges are pending.
Family members have options available
The surviving family members of the victim who was killed in this tragic Louisiana accident have options available to help ease their pain and suffering. For example, they may choose to speak with a skilled litigator and work toward filing a wrongful death claim against the driver believed to have been at fault. If the lawsuit is successful, the victim’s loved ones could receive a substantial monetary award to cover end-of-life expenses and other financial losses that occurred due to this tragedy.
