Motor vehicle accidents: Failure to yield prompts major crash

Failing to yield to oncoming traffic prior to navigating a left turn can be dangerous under any circumstance. Motor vehicle accidents that occur when a vehicle suddenly crosses into the path of another car run the unfortunate chance of placing the safety of all parties involved at risk. As many as three people reportedly suffered serious injuries in a recent collision involving a similar scenario in Illinois.

The accident is said to have taken place at around 4:45 p.m. on a recent Monday. According to authorities, initial investigations suggest that the incident took place as the driver of a westbound vehicle was attempting to navigate a left turn. This vehicle crossed into the path of an oncoming vehicle in the process, subsequently resulting in a major collision.

Law enforcement agents say that three individuals were transported to nearby hospitals for treatment of serious injuries following the crash. While the accident is under investigation, no further information was provided as to why the driver of the first vehicle may have attempted such a maneuver. However, authorities have stated that this person was issued a citation for failure to yield.

When the negligent actions of another driver causes a serious collision to occur, the consequences the incident may have on the safety of those involved can be disastrous. Those who suffer severe harm in motor vehicle accidents involving similar circumstances may wish to exercise their right to seek accountability through the civil justice system, but the process can be complex. Fortunately, there are attorneys who can examine the incident and assist a person in Illinois in pursuing the full amount of compensation entitled through a personal injury claim.
