Weather may have contributed to a 2-vehicle crash in Wisconsin

The weather here in Lacrosse, Wisconsin can wreak havoc on our roadways and make driving a potentially dangerous and even lethal activity. Snow and ice can cause vehicles to slide, particularly if they are negotiating a curve or attempting to stop. Water that pools on the roadway from heavy rains can pose a hydroplaning danger. Drivers who are traveling in these conditions need to be extra vigilant and slow down in order to negotiate the roads safely.

Weather is believed to be a factor in a car accident that occurred recently in the Town of Coon, Wisconsin. A 48-year-old man from Cashton was driving his pickup truck west on U.S. Highway 14 when another vehicle driven by a 23-year-old woman from La Crosse crossed the center line and crashed into him, sending him into a snowbank on the side of the road. The woman evidently had lost control of her car due to the snow and slush on the highway. After the crash, the woman’s car started on fire, but was soon put out.

Both drivers suffered minor injuries despite the fact that their vehicles were severely damaged. They were both wearing seatbelts at the time and the airbags in both vehicles were deployed.

Although the crash is still being investigated by authorities, the man may wish to speak with a personal injury attorney about the incident. A lawyer may be able to explain his rights and discuss his entitlement to compensation for any of his medical expenses and damages done to his vehicle.
