2-car collision results in multiple injuries in Wisconsin

When a vehicle travels too closely behind another, it is known as tailgating. Tailgating can be a very dangerous driving habit; in fact crashes in Wisconsin are commonly attributed to it. Because of this, Wisconsin authorities do not take kindly to those who they catch tailgating and have the right to issue citations. The law states that the driver of an automobile must not follow another car too closely, taking into consideration the speed and traffic conditions on the road. You just never know when the driver in front of you may have to slam on his brakes to avoid a collision. If you are following too closely, you likely will not have time to stop.

A car accident occurred in Washburn County, Wisconsin recently when a vehicle that may have been following another automobile too closely crashed into the back of it. The lead car was traveling along Highway 63 near the intersection with North Road when a dog ran out into the street. The driver of the first car slammed on the brakes in order to avoid the dog, but the automobile behind it slammed into the first car.

It is not clear how many people were injured, but medical personnel were called to the scene to transfer those who were injured to area hospitals.

The people involved in this crash would be well advised to consult with a personal injury attorney. Doing so may enable them to receive compensation for their pain and suffering, medical expenses and damages done to their vehicles.
