Four-vehicle crash kills one, injures another

A 17-year-old girl explained what happened to her in the fatal accident that killed one man and seriously injured another man, who was his brother. She said she was driving to work when she saw a black passenger car cut off a Grand Prix, which sent the Grand Prix into a spin. The girl hit the side of the silver car, then a Sierra truck hit between the girl's Mustang and the silver car. The girl spun out, unable to see the entire accident.

A trooper said that the driver of the passenger car signaled to move into the left lane, and didn't see the brothers' car as it moved over. When the brothers tried to avoid the black passenger car moving into their car, they moved to the right and hit a Monte Carlo. The brothers' car kept going left, crossing lanes of traffic. Their car was hit by the Sierra truck. The car that signaled a lane change failed to yield.

The man in the Sierra and his 4-year-old daughter suffered minor injuries. The Monte Carlo driver was not injured. The girl in the Mustang and another driver were not injured. The brother who was a passenger died in the crash. The brother driving suffered serious injuries and was listed in critical condition, according to authorities.

Drivers have a duty to drive safely to protect drivers in other vehicle and passengers in their own cars. When a driver does not drive safely, they can and should be held responsible for the damage and loss of life that their negligence has caused.
