Auto accident involving three cars hospitalizes two people

In Rochester, an auto accident can happen at any moment without warning and cause serious long-term problems to those involved. It can even lead to fatalities. A car accident can happen for a multitude of reasons from a driver behaving recklessly, to using a cell phone while driving, because of the weather or due to many other factors. Regardless of how it happened, those who were victimized need to know what to do in its aftermath.

A three-car accident in Minnesota sent two people to the hospital with serious injuries. The accident occurred at approximately 1:45 p.m. as a vehicle heading east pulled onto the highway and into the path of another vehicle that was heading north. The vehicle heading north had the right of way. When the first two vehicles collided, the car heading north ran into a third vehicle that was heading west. A passenger in the vehicle that was going east and a passenger in the vehicle going north were the injured parties.

When there is an auto accident, there will be a sense of relief if no one was injured fatally. However, if there are serious injuries from the crash, these can lead to massive medical expenses, the need for long-term care, rehabilitation and the inability to return to work in a timely fashion. In some instances, people aren’t able to return to normal at all. Insurance companies are mainly focused on keeping costs in line, so it might be difficult to get them to pay for the costs that an auto accident can cause. It’s imperative that a full crash reconstruction be undertaken so the circumstances of the accident can be understood and evidence presented in the event of personal injury litigation.

In this accident, three vehicles were involved with two people injured seriously. The extent of their injuries has not been disclosed. People in similar situations may want to contact and discuss the matter with a legal professional experienced in motor vehicle accidents.
