Car accidents in poor weather conditions

Wisconsin residents are no strangers to inclement weather. Driver's have likely driven in rain, snow and ice all within the same year. However, sometimes, drivers may not be as careful as they should be during poor weather conditions. Other times, a small mistake may be amplified by the conditions, and car accidents can occur. 

A recent crash between two vehicles occurred one morning on a slush-covered road during a freezing rainstorm. There were a total of five people involved in the crash. One of the vehicles was a van carrying four people, and the other was an SUV. While driving eastbound on the icy road, the van began spinning out of control and crossed the center line. It then collided with a westbound SUV. 

When authorities arrived on the scene, they discovered that four of the individuals, including both drivers, had been injured in the crash. Unfortunately, the fifth person, a passenger from the van, was killed in the collision, but the injured people were taken to local hospitals for treatment. The crash remains under investigation by authorities. 

A wide variety of things can contribute to a car crash. However, poor weather conditions can make even a small mistake a deadly one. People who have been involved in car accidents in Wisconsin may wish to consider consulting with an attorney. If the victim of a crash has been injured or killed, then that person or their family may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, property damages or funeral costs.
