3 injured, 4 killed in head-on collision

A crash on Interstate 40 that happened approximately 20 miles east of Flagstaff, Arizona, killed four people on the morning of August 7. The car accident occurred around 11:30 a.m. when a vehicle drove across the median and collided with another head-on. Three people were injured in the wreck, and they were transported to Flagstaff Medical Center.

The accident resulted in the closing of the eastbound and westbound lanes of traffic. The westbound lanes were the last to be reopened around 2 p.m, and traffic had backed up for approximately 10 miles prior to that.

Police did not know what caused the instigating vehicle to cross the median when the news source reported the incident, and the accident remained under investigation by the Arizona Department of Public Safety as of August 8. The news source did not say if any charges were pending in that investigation.

It may be difficult for injured accident victims to pay for medical bills and subsequent treatment. They may also be forced to take time off work to recover. Such circumstances could lead financial hardships for those hurt in motor vehicle accidents. Additionally, when people are killed in automobile crashes, their surviving family members may be left with financial burdens that compound their grief. It may be helpful for both families of fatal accident victims and people injured in car accidents to contact attorneys who are experienced with wrongful death and personal injury suits. Those lawyers may be able to help such parties pursue out-of-court settlements or civil litigation against the entities believed to have been responsible for their loved ones' deaths or their own injuries.
