Old Dominion University Student Buried After Being Killed In Car Crash
The college student, his brother and a friend were in western Maryland and headed to Virginia after visiting a friend at West Virginia University when the wreck occurred. The driver lost control of the car, and it overturned. The ODU student, age 18, from Alexandria, Virginia (VA), was thrown from the car and died at the scene. His brother and the driver, age 18, were taken to a hospital for treatment of serious injuries.
The fatal accident was still under investigation. If the VA wreck was the fault of anyone, the family or friends of the men might have to file a wrongful death case based on negligent operation of a car, with the assistance of Virginia personal injury lawyers, against the responsible parties in order to get justice for the tragic losses.
The death of a loved one is a life-changing event that may never fully be put in the past. It is troubling to think that, in a split moment, one man suffered serious injuries he may never fully recover from, and three other men are gone, with no one ever experiencing their energy, smile, or love again. This Virginia vehicle crash illustrated the damage that can occur in a car wreck, and how someone might need to engage VA personal injury attorneys to help in recovering.
