Arkansas motor vehicle accident leaves 3 injured, 1 dead

Serious car accidents can result in severe injuries and sometimes even death. A motor vehicle accident can occur for a large number of reasons, including distracted driving, drunk driving and icy roads. The cause of a recent Arkansas accident has yet to be determined, but the accident did result in numerous injuries.

On a recent Thursday morning, a fatal motor vehicle accident resulted in traffic being rerouted. Reportedly, a 21-year-old man died, and several individuals were injured, after the man's truck rear-ended a car in front of him. The brunt force from the collision caused a domino effect that resulted in three other vehicles being involved.

For unknown reasons, a van, as well as three vehicles ahead of it, had come to a stop on Interstate 30. The truck rear-ended the van, which then rear-ended the vehicle in front of it and so on. Some left the accident unscathed, but three people, including a five-year-old, sustained injuries from the crash. The extent of their injuries were not clear.

In most cases, the person who strikes someone from behind is the person deemed at fault for a motor vehicle accident. Whether this will be the case in this particular accident remains to be seen. However, in Arkansas, injured individuals have the right to bring a personal injury claim against the at-fault driver or the estate of the responsible deceased driver. Such a claim could recover monetary damages that can help the injured victims pay for lost employment wages and medical expenses that incurred as a result of the incident.
