Three vehicles involved in fatal crash

Three cars were involved in a crash in Oregon recently, leaving one person dead and another injured. There aren't many details available about the crash, but what is suspected is that the car carrying the two victims in this crash turned in front of one of the vehicles. It is not known how the third vehicle became involved in the crash.

The source article shows the carnage in the wake of this crash. Two of the cars pinned the vehicle with the two victims in it on its side. The accident will be investigated and there will surely be some more details that come out about the wreck in the coming days or weeks.

There are a couple of factors to take away from this story, and the first is the "rollover" nature of this crash. Rollover accidents can cause far more serious injuries to the people in the vehicle than "normal" accidents. Inherent to the nature of a rollover accident is the fact that the roof -- and, thus, the head and neck of the people in the car -- is at risk. People can suffer debilitating and permanent injuries in rollover accidents, such as spinal cord injuries or brain injuries.

If the accident happened under negligent circumstances, the victims of the wreck can sue the reckless driver for damages that could help them pay for their medical bills.

The other aspect here is the investigation into the wreck itself. It is easy for the victims of a wreck to get anxious and want to take action as quickly as they can -- but sometimes the investigation can take a long time, delaying that desire to take action.
