The force of the crash caused the Taurus to leave the road and hit a light pole. One passenger from each car was seriously injured and had to be transported by helicopter to a hospital for medical treatment. According to Trooper J. L. Stiltner of the Virginia State Police, the driver of the turning car caused the accident and has been charged with reckless driving.

It is not known why the driver turned in front of the oncoming car. What is known is that two people were seriously injured as a result of the person’s actions. Both injured victims should contact a Virginia car accident attorney to discuss the facts of the crash and what actions should be taken on their behalf.

It is understandable that the victim riding in the car with the at-fault driver may be hesitant to file any claims since the driver was most likely a friend or relative. But this information provided by an experienced Virginia accident attorney explains why a potential claim needs to be considered even if the person who caused the accident is a friend of the victim.
