Two killed, 2 injured in head-on auto accident near Lake Charles

Drivers in Louisiana will never expect to be involved in an auto accident when they head out on the road. Most will certainly have it in the back of their minds that it is a possibility, but few will think about it the entire time they are driving or riding in a vehicle as a passenger. The same holds true for people who see loved ones go out on the road. However, car accidents happen every day and they can cause catastrophic injuries and death. A car accident victim and the victim's family must make sure they understand the possible long-term ramifications of a crash and consider a legal filing to be compensated.

A head-on crash involving a truck and a sedan led to two people dying and two others being injured. The accident happened in the mid-morning at around 10:15 a.m. The law enforcement investigation shows that one of the vehicles cross the center line in the road, leading to the collision. It is not clear which vehicle crossed the line. The sedan's driver, a 24-year-old man, and a 19-year-old male passenger in the back were both killed. The passenger in the front seat was taken to the hospital via airlift and was listed in critical condition. The truck flipped over. It then caught fire. The driver escaped the vehicle and was also hospitalized. His injuries were listed as serious. The investigation is ongoing to determine which vehicle crossed the line.

One of the worst possible car collisions is a head-on crash. Because drivers have nowhere to go when a vehicle is heading toward them, it can result in major injuries and death. Along with injuries will come medical care. Depending on the extent of the injuries, the person's life as he or she knew it might change forever. Working and contributing to a home can be limited if not eliminated. The family might need to care for an injured loved one, putting a strain on emotions and finances. When there is a death, there will be funeral costs and the emotional and personal impact of the unexpected death. Often, a lawsuit is the only avenue to be adequately compensated.
