A horrific accident on Gene Snyder results in a wrongful death as well as serious injuries to other parties and a lot of questions. The chain of events began simply with a disabled car which was not quite off of the road. A good Samaritan stopped to help push the disabled vehicle out of the way. While the driver of the disabled vehicle and the good Samaritan were working to push the vehicle off of the roadway, a third car lost control and hit the cable barrier.
At this point all have exited their vehicles and there are three people attempting to push the disabled car off the road when a fourth car lost control and hit the men outside of their vehicles. The driver of the fourth vehicle who struck the pedestrians claimed she hit a water puddle while changing lanes and lost control.
Unfortunately one of the men she hit passed away, and a second was transported to the hospital with serious injuries. This is a complex personal injury case. Kentucky is a comparative fault state, and while a vehicle struck and killed one person (a wrongful death) and seriously injured another it is not difficult to imagine responsible insurance companies attempting to assert the victims contributed to the cause of this unfortunate chain of events.
