A 77-year-old woman suffered critical injuries in a car crash, according to a report in The Gazette. Police say, a vehicle traveling northbound on Powers Boulevard attempted to make a left turn onto westbound Stetson Hills Boulevard, when it collided with another car. The driver of the northbound car, a 77-year-old woman, was listed in critical condition. The driver of the second vehicle suffered relatively minor injuries, officials said. The investigation is ongoing.
In a car crash involving two vehicles at a street intersection, a number of questions must be asked and answered to arrive at the truth. Did one of the vehicles make an illegal turn? Did one of the drivers fail to yield the right of way? Was speed, alcohol, or distracted driving a factor in the collision?
In such cases, the at-fault driver can be held liable for damages such as medical expenses, lost wages, cost of hospitalization, rehabilitative treatment, and pain and suffering. If the accident occurred at a dangerous or defective intersection, the governmental entity responsible for maintaining the roadway can also be held accountable.
