Two people were hospitalized after a Virginia car crash on Wednesday morning, September 12, 2012. The accident occurred on US 58 near Ringgold, VA, when an SUV leaving a parking lot pulled out in front of a smaller car. The smaller car also hit a parked car during the wreck, and one occupant had to be removed from the vehicle. The driver who pulled out on the street has been charged with failure to yield.
The Virginia Injury Lawyer’s Perspective:
We hope the two victims recover quickly and completely. As VA car accident attorneys, we have seen this type of car wreck many times. What caused the driver to pull out in front of another car in this wreck is unknown, but the explanation is often as simple as they were just distracted by a song on the radio or a stray thought. These accidents illustrate yet again how important it is to give your complete attention to the road and those around you when you are driving.
