A preliminary investigation shows a 2018 Ford cargo van was traveling eastbound on Route 173 when it struck a 2013 Hyundai sedan that was stopped in traffic.

The Hyundai then struck a 2005 Range Rover, which was also stopped in traffic.

The impact with the Hyundai caused the Ford van to go into oncoming traffic and strike a 2009 Toyota traveling westbound on Route 173. The Ford van ended up in a ditch.

Among those injured and taken to the hospital were three juvenile occupants of the Toyota. One of these occupants had serious, but non-life-threatening injuries.

When someone is injured during an accident that wasn’t their fault, that person may be able to get injury compensation. Often this is done through the filing of a personal injury lawsuit. There are many reasons as to why someone may want to file a personal injury lawsuit. Those reasons are further discussed on the “Reasons For Filing A Personal Injury Lawsuit After An Accident” page.

Due to the cost of medical care, as well as other factors that will impact someone who has been injured, it is important that the injured person is properly compensated for the injuries and other harm suffered because of the accident.
