A five-car crash on Interstate 255 seriously injured two men Saturday night and closed the highway for more than two hours. The accident began when the driver of a 2006 Cadillac lost control and hit a guardrail in St. Clair County. When the Cadillac came to stop it was blocking the far right lane. A second vehicle, a 2006 Ford F-150 swerved to miss the Cadillac and hit the concrete middle divider and came to rest on the left shoulder, partially blocking the left lane. The driver of the second vehicle suffered serious injuries. The third vehicle, a 2007 Ford Mustang was unable to stop and crashed into the Ford pick up on the passenger side. The fourth vehicle, a 1989 GMC pickup swerved to avoid the collision in front of a fifth vehicle which was a tractor-trailer. The tractor-trailer hit the GMC pickup and pushed it to the right of the roadway where it went off the east paxil 40 mg side embankment. The driver of the GMC truck also sustained serious injuries. It is unknown how injured the driver of the tractor trailer is at this point, but was taken to a local hospital.
When a driver is negligent, the effects are often deadly. Catastrophic injuries can be a result of auto accidents as well as wrongful deaths. Calling an attorney as soon as possible is important in order to preserve many aspects of the investigation. If you or a loved one were hurt in an auto accident or due to the negligent or reckless driving of another, you may have a legal claim for compensation.
