Any time someone dies at the scene of a motor vehicle accident, it is always tragic. Situations that include more than one fatality are especially devastating. Such was the case in a recent collision that occurred on a Wisconsin roadway. When an accident is determined to have been caused by a negligent driver, there may be grounds for filing a wrongful death claim in court.
Two cars were involved in the recent fatal collision, which occurred just after 3 p.m. on a recent Wednesday afternoon. A 57-year-old woman was behind the wheel of one of the vehicles. Traveling together in the other were a man and his elderly wife. Although the official investigation remains active, police have so far suggested that the 57-year-old woman appears to have veered out of her traffic lane and into oncoming vehicles.
