Nine people needed to be transported to Sentara Obici Hospital after three vehicles wrecked on North Main Street in Suffolk, Virginia (VA), on the afternoon of June 5, 2012. According to police, the at-fault driver was in a car and failed to yield right of way to oncoming vehicles while turning out of an AutoZone parking lot.
Charges will be filed against the at-fault driver, but no information on the identity or condition of the crash victims was made available.
As Virginia personal injury attorneys, we have helped many drivers and passengers hurt in crashes caused by other people who made turns, changed lanes or exited parking lots unsafely. Any time a driver has to cross in front of or merge with flowing traffic, he or she has to yield right of way to approaching or neighboring vehicles. Failing to wait until the way is clear cases causes more accidents, injuries and deaths on our roads than just about any other cause.
