West Palm Beach crash kills one, seriously injuries another

A serious car accident in the West Palm Beach area left one man died and another person hospitalized with serious injuries. The accident involved four vehicles, but the drivers of the other two vehicles were thankfully not hurt seriously.

According to police, the driver who died at the scene approached an intersection driving too fast, all the reason for his speeding was not known. Family members say that the man suffered from seizures and was not medically fit to be driving.

The driver rear-ended someone in front of him, and this caused a chain reaction crash in which the second vehicle hit a third vehicle and also ran in to a fourth vehicle that may be have been passing through the intersection. The driver who got rear-ended suffered from several broken bones and also had damage in the area of the face.

In this situation, while his death is tragic, it appears the driver who died at the scene may have been responsible for the accident, an accident which injured other motorists, one of them seriously. This may cause some to wonder what the other victims can do to obtain compensation, as the person who caused the wreck died.

Fortunately, legal options are still available to these victims, as they could, for instance, elect to pursue a claim against the deceased person's estate. The details of how to proceed in these sorts of situations may be best navigated with the help of experienced West Palm Beach, Florida, car accident injury lawyers.
