As car accident attorneys, we hate hearing about any accidents, especially those involving children. On January 15 at 11:30 a.m., a restored pickup truck hit an SUV containing a father and two children near Cooper and Riggs, according to Fox 10. Two people were ejected during the crash. A 7-year-old was taken to the hospital with injuries along with three or four adults. Our thoughts are with the injured victims and we wish them a quick recovery.
Possible Causes of the Accident
This auto accident could have been caused by alcohol. Police are still investigating to determine whether alcohol played a role. It could also have been caused by a distracted driver or one who failed to yield and turned in front of the oncoming car. Whatever the cause, this crash deserves professional investigation to determine the facts.
