No words can explain the suffering and pain a person feels after the untimely death of a loved one, especially if the tragic incident occurred as a result of other people’s negligence. The victim’s family will not just grieve for the life that was taken from them, but they might also have to deal with loss of income, funeral expenses, and loss of future financial assistance from the victim. Just imagine how painful it could be; what more if the incident happened right before Christmas? Instead of celebrating the season with the whole family, the aftermath of the fatality might leave surviving family members hopeless — enduring the heartache of losing someone they love.
For an instance, a 62-year-old man visiting relatives in Utah during the Christmas season was killed in a two-vehicle crash. According to police report, Randall “Randy” Rummage was driving a Honda Accord westbound in the 1400 block of North Main Street Sunday, about 2:30 p.m., when the car was broadsided by a Jeep Liberty. As stated by the authorities, Rummage was stuck in the vehicle but freed and rushed to a hospital where he later died of injuries. On the other hand, the driver of the other vehicle, 48-year-old Bryan Long of Springville was not seriously injured. Police say they believe Long ran a red light and hit Rummage’s car. At present, charges are pending against him.
