I-395 Accident Results in Death of Passenger

Comments (0)

What Happened

While driving down Interstate 395 (I-395) in Alexandria, Virginia (VA), an Audi A8 ran off the road and slammed into a tree. The impact ripped the vehicle in half and sent one end careening over the guardrail. According to WTOP, one passenger died at the scene despite rescue efforts. The driver and two other passengers in the car suffered injuries.

Police say that speed and alcohol were prominent factors in the car crash. The driver of the vehicle has been charged with DUI-related manslaughter.

Our deepest condolences go out to the family of the victim who lost his life in this horrific accident. Losing a loved one is one of the difficult and heartbreaking experiences anyone can suffer through, but the pain is made even worse when the loss is sudden and unexpected.

The Virginia Injury Lawyer’s Perspective

The victim’s family should speak with a Virginia wrongful death lawyer to discuss their legal options. Just because criminal charges have been filed against the driver in this accident, does not preclude the family from seeking restitution through a wrongful death claim.
