Nobody expects to go on vacation and have the unthinkable happen. Tragedy struck for a Rhode Island couple while traveling through Nelson County, VA. Alphonse Beaulieu and his wife, Rita, were on their motorcycle when it collided with another vehicle. Authorities say that a Dodge Neon failed to stop at a stop sign at the intersection of Virginia 151 and 840 causing the crash with the motorcycle. Rita Beaulieu died as a result of this crash and Mr. Beaulieu suffered life-threatening injuries. Charges are pending against the driver of the Neon.
The Virginia Injury Lawyers Perspective:
Our deepest sympathies go out to the family of the victims. It is hard enough to hear that one victim was killed, but it is distressing to learn that her husband may not survive his injuries. What is even more tragic is to learn that the probable cause of this accident was somebody disobeying a road sign. As experienced wrongful death lawyers in Virginia, we hear time and again about tragedies like this occurring and, too often, they are due to something so basic. To obey road signs and to pay enough attention that they are not ignored, disregarded or overlooked completely – it is a basic tenet of driving a motor vehicle.
