Rhode Island car accident takes a life

When two vehicles collide while travelling at high speeds, the car accident can have devastating results. A family that loses a loved one unexpectedly from a crash may question the accident as they mourn their loss. A devastating fatal car accident recently took place on a popular Rhode Island highway that resulted in the loss of a life and injury to another.

The crash occurred shortly before midnight when an SUV and sedan collided. Reports indicate that the vehicles were travelling in opposite directions when they hit one another, though the wreckage does not appear to have been created from a direct head-on collision. The SUV appears to have hit the side of the sedan where its driver door was smashed in and the front of the car was not damaged.

The middle-aged driver of the sedan was determined to have lost his life as a result of the impact. The young couple in the SUV was transported to a nearby medical facility, where only one of them received treatment for injuries. Authorities could not determine at the time which of the two had been driving the SUV at the time of the accident.

As the investigation continues, Rhode Island authorities and a reconstruction teem hope to determine the cause of the accident to submit a report to the district attorney. In the event the driver of the SUV is suspected for liability, the attorney general may choose to criminally charge the necessary person. A person who has lost a loved one in a fatal car accident may choose to pursue legal action in civil court against someone who has been charged for their involvement in a wreck.
