Car accident results in fatal injuries in Oregon

Families often say goodbye to their loved ones with the intention of seeing them again later. Unfortunately, many people lose loved ones in sudden accidents before they are able to meet again. A car accident can easily lead to this type of tragic scenario, and one such incident recently took place in Oregon.

According to reports, a 26-year-old man and a 24-year-old woman were inside a vehicle when a crash took place. Their vehicle was the only one involved. The man was driving south when he failed to keep the car on the roadway. As a result, the vehicle flipped and then struck a telephone pole. The incident took place at around 3 a.m., and emergency crews responded to the scene.

The passenger suffered fatal injuries as a result of the incident, and she was declared dead at the accident site. The driver was taken to a medical center for treatment of injuries that were not considered life-threatening. Authorities believe that driver fatigue may have played a role in the fatal event. Additional information may became available at a later time as the investigation is likely ongoing.

News of this fatal Oregon car accident undoubtedly caused the victim's family a substantial amount of pain and grief. As they work through the repercussions of the incident, they may find themselves considering the possibility of seeking compensation for the damages this event has caused. If they wish to do so, they may be able to file a wrongful death claim against the driver considered at fault. Information on this legal option may be useful to them.
