Many accidents happen during night when it’s difficult to see, but they can happen at any time. Drivers have to be alert to avoid an accident. But on a narrow road, it may be unavoidable if someone decides to bend the rules.
In Randolph County, two people were taken to the hospital after a head-on collision in the early afternoon. One driver came out of a curve too hard and drifted over the center line. He struck another driver taking the curve head-on. Fortunately for the drivers, there were only minor injuries. The driver that drifted was flown to Ruby and is in fair condition.
According to the investigating officer, the driver that drifted might not have been wearing their seatbelt. If this is true, this driver is very lucky. The force of the curve may have saved him from hurtling through the windshield.
After the recovery is done, then it will be up to the courts and the drivers whether to pursue charges. It is obvious that one of the people is at fault according to the report. If the insurance companies won’t pay enough to cover damages, or if the at-fault driver had no insurance at all, then it may be necessary to recover damages in civil court.
