Emergency vehicle vs. car accidents can be deadly

Kentucky drivers are aware of the need to be aware and attentive when there are emergency vehicles in the area. Fire trucks, law enforcement vehicles and ambulances are often on the streets and traveling at significant speeds to get to their destination to help others. However, these vehicles are not always in a rush to get to an accident and their drivers can make mistakes just like anyone else. When there is a crash because an emergency vehicle violated the law by failing to yield, there can be ambulance-car accidents that could cause injuries and death - just what those in the ambulance are trying to help people get through. In these accidents, those who were involved or lost a loved one must remember their rights to consider a lawsuit.

A crash in the early morning hours between an ambulance and a car led to the deaths of the two people in the car. The accident occurred at approximately 3 a.m. The ambulance was heading east and tried to turn to the road heading north when it was hit by a vehicle that was going west. The ambulance did not have its emergency lights activated, but there was a patient in the back. The impact flipped the ambulance onto its side. There were three EMS workers in the ambulance along with the patient. All were taken to the hospital and none of the injuries were believed to be life-threatening. The people in the vehicle - two men, 23 and 45 - were killed. The passenger died at the site of the crash. The driver died at the hospital. It is possible that fog was a factor and the accident is still under investigation.

After car accidents of any kind with injuries and fatalities, the investigation is critical to determine what happened. That usually means the law enforcement investigation, but people who have been injured or lost a loved one also need an investigation with their interests in mind. That is where a qualified attorney is key. Since the key to a legal filing after car accidents is often the evidence, having legal help is a must. With the medical expenses, lost wages, lost companionship and, in a worst-case scenario, funeral costs, those who were impacted must protect themselves and get legal advice.

A crash between a car and an ambulance killed the two men in the car and sent the four people in the ambulance to the hospital. The case is being investigated by law enforcement, but those who lost their loved ones or were injured should also think about their interests by contacting a law firm that specializes in assisting people after car accidents.
