A teen driver was driving on Mansion way in Amherst County, Virginia (VA), when she ran off the road, came back onto the pavement, then T-boned a passing vehicle. The struck vehicle flipped, trapping its 53-year-old driver for 30 minutes until rescuers could free her.
The injured woman was airlifted to a local hospital, where she remains in stable condition. The teen has been charged with reckless driving.
The Virginia Personal Injury Lawyers' Perspective
The injured woman and her family may need to consult with a Virginia personal injury attorney about their options. The teen driver's inexperience probably led to her panicking when she left the roadway, but that is no excuse for causing pain and suffering. A more in-depth investigation of the crash could reveal exactly what went wrong, and why.
