Head-on collision in Oregon leads to death, injuries

Many people consider traveling the roads as a mundane experience. After all, most people complete daily commutes to various destinations, so being on the road is hardly exciting. However, there are plenty of risks that come along with driving or riding in a vehicle, and without a moment's notice, a car accident could occur that makes a day anything but mundane.

It was recently reported that a crash took place Oregon that resulted in one fatality and injuries to two other people. According to reports, the driver of an SUV veered out of the eastbound lane and began traveling the wrong direction in the westbound lane. The SUV sideswiped a work truck that was almost able to get out of the way by moving into the eastbound lane. The SUV then collided head-on with a car before being rear-ended by a truck.

Authorities suspect that the glare from the sun played a role in the incident. The crash resulted in the SUV driver suffering fatal injuries, and that person died at the accident site. Two individuals in the car that was hit were transported to an area hospital for treatment. The extent of their injuries was not detailed in the report, but they were not considered life-threatening.

Though the driver considered at fault for this Oregon car accident died as a result, the surviving injured parties may still have options for seeking compensation. Personal injury claims could be filed against the driver's estate. Information on taking such action may help the injured parties determine whether they would like to follow this legal route.
