A fatal accident on the Dixie Highway in Louisville on April 3 has also resulted in injuries to 3 other victims. The two car crash occurred around 7:30 PM as a car pulled out into the Dixie Highway from the intersection with Flintlock Drive. The driver of the car which pulled into the intersection lost her life at the scene, while the passenger in her car was taken to University Hospital with serious injuries.
The driver of the vehicle which was southbound on the Dixie Highway and a passenger in that vehicle was also transported to University Hospital, fortunately with non-life threatening injuries. While investigation is still underway and speed may have been a factor, this car accident reminds all of us to be more cautious when approaching intersections or when making a turn onto a major thoroughfare from a side street.
Today’s cars are much safer than vehicles from even a decade ago, but there is much less protection for a driver and their occupants when their vehicle is struck from the side. These types of side-impact crashes often result in serious injuries which can result in permanent damage including paralysis. If the loss of life was the result of speeding or reckless operation on the part of another driver the family of the victim who lost her life would consider a wrongful death lawsuit.
