Woman killed, another injured in frightening Highway 14 crash

In the event of an accident, victims are often left shaken and afraid, with more questions than answers. A car accident is a traumatizing experience for those involved, leaving many with wounds ranging from minor cuts and bruises to catastrophic injuries.

Two Evansville women were involved in a terrifying crash that took place on the morning of Feb. 18. One woman was seriously injured in the accident, while sadly the other was killed. Police report that the 32-year-old woman who is now deceased was traveling southbound on Highway 14. Her car breached the shoulder of the road, and she over-corrected. Her car crossed into the oncoming lane and collided with an SUV driven by a 42-year-old woman.

The car flipped, and the driver was trapped in the vehicle. She was later extricated and, according to police in Rutland, was not wearing a seat belt. She was later pronounced dead at University of Wisconsin Hospital. The other driver was transported to the same hospital with serious injuries.

The SUV driver, who at the time of the crash had a seat belt on, also had to be extricated from her vehicle.

These types of tragedies are devastating for everyone involved, but a car accident victim doesn't have to face medical expenses and pain and suffering alone. By learning more about their rights to compensation, victims may be able to combat and recoup the damages they've suffered through no fault of their own.
