Some car accidents happen when not all the cars are moving

Those who have been in similar vehicular collisions in Wisconsin understand the shock of being struck by another vehicle at a red light. Many car accidents occur when one or more vehicles are stopped at traffic lights. The sudden jolt and jarring that occurs when a moving vehicle rams into a stationary one is not something one is soon to forget.

Such appears to have been the case in an incident in Green Bay. Police responded to the scene just before noon on a recent Saturday after getting a call that reported a reckless driver on the road. A vehicle that was allegedly headed in a northbound direction suddenly slammed into several other vehicles stopped at a red light nearby.

Several people were injured in the crash. One 10-year-old boy in particular appears to have suffered more serious injuries than the others and was flown to a hospital for emergency care. Three other travelers apparently suffered non-life threatening injuries in the accident.

Not all car accidents are caused by intentional recklessness. Authorities say a medical condition may have been a causal factor in the crash in this particular situation. An investigation has been launched, and plans to reconstruct the accident are underway. In Wisconsin and all other states, a parent or other legal guardian may act on behalf of a child injured in a car accident to seek compensation for damages against the person or persons deemed responsible. Successfully litigated claims often provide monies that help parents offset exorbitant costs associated with medical treatment and/or ongoing recovery care for an injured child.
