Motor vehicle accidents: 2-car crash injures 2 drivers, 4 minors

Drivers who have minor passengers with them must take extra care. Motor vehicle accidents can happen in seconds, and the consequences can be devastating. Authorities in Arizona report a recent two-car crash that sent all the occupants of both cars to the hospital -- some with critical injuries.

Reportedly, firefighters of Tolleson, Phoenix and Avondale rushed to the crash scene shortly after midnight on a recent Sunday to assist with transporting injured victims to medical facilities. In a crash report, police say a 28-year-old woman was heading south on a Tolleson road when she lost control of her vehicle and traveled across the center median. She entered the traffic lane on the opposite side and smashed into a northbound car that was driven by a 23-year-old woman.

Further reports indicate that both drivers and their passengers were rushed to trauma centers in the area. The passengers were three boys, ages 8, 10 and 12 years, along with one 15-year old girl. The conditions of all except the 10-year-old boy were reportedly stable, while his status was listed as critical. An ongoing investigation might determine the cause for the driver crossing over the center, but authorities do not suspect impairment.

When minor passengers suffer injuries in motor vehicle accidents that were caused by the negligence of drivers, their parents can pursue financial relief through the Arizona civil justice system. An experienced personal injury attorney can provide the necessary support and guidance throughout ensuing legal proceedings. Medical expenses and other financial and emotional damages can be included in documented claims.
