Kentucky car accident claims the life of teenage boy

Driving privileges provide many Kentucky motorists with a convenient and reliable way to get from one destination to another. However, it is accompanied by risks that are sometimes unavoidable especially when there are so many people who fail to acknowledge traffic laws or are distracted or intoxicated. Sometimes, the actions of others can cause car accidents that result in serious injury or death.

For one group of Kentucky teenagers, a midnight drive turned deadly when the driver accidentally ran the vehicle off of the road. Inside of the car were three juveniles. Two of the teens were wearing their seatbelts, but one of the teenagers was not and was ejected from the vehicle when it crashed.

Investigators determined that the car suddenly left the road and ended up overturned, after hitting an embankment.  The young man who had been sitting in the backseat and was ejected was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. The other teens were injured, but not seriously. The teens’ car was the only vehicle involved in the accident. While authorities were able to reconstruct the scene, they were still unable to determine exactly what caused the car to leave the road before it crashed. Currently, the accident is still under investigation.

Fortunately, for people who have been involved in a car accident or have loved ones who have been injured or killed in a crash, help is available. An experienced attorney can provide legal guidance to help victims work through situations in a way that is resourceful and productive.
