Wrong-way driver causes 4-vehicle Austin car accident

For drivers traveling on an interstate highway, the last thing they expect to see is a pair of headlights approaching them from a vehicle driving the wrong. Even if both vehicles are traveling under the legal speed limit, often there is little time for drivers to react quickly enough to avoid a car accident. This can sometimes result in head-on collisions that cause significant damage to the vehicles involved and injuries to people occupying the vehicles.

A Ford Expedition driven by a 31-year-old woman was allegedly driving her vehicle the wrong direction on Interstate 35 in Austin last week and caused a car accident that involved four vehicles.

According to police, the Expedition first collided with a Lexus, causing the Lexus to hit a Freightliner truck. Following this, the Expedition driver collided head-on with a Ford F-150. The wrong-way vehicle then erupted in flames. Between the crash and the fire, the injuries ended up being fatal for the driver of that vehicle.

The driver of the Ford F-150 was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment of injuries sustained in the accident, and is expected to recover. The drivers of the other two vehicles involved did not report any injuries at the scene of the accident.

Even though the driver who allegedly caused this accident did not survive, injured drivers may still have the right to recover damages resulting from this accident, including medical bills, lost wages and other expenses. Victims of accidents like these may want to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney who can work with them to identify possible compensation they are entitled to.
