Arkansas roads not immune to fatal car accidents

Roads see a number of crashes every day, and often, these incidents lead to lost lives. While no family wants to be the ones involved in a fatal accident or to lose a loved one in such an event, no one is immune from potentially having to face such outcomes. Unfortunately, car accidents can happen in an instant and change lives forever.

It was recently reported that an accident in Arkansas claimed the lives of two individuals. Apparently, a 61-year-old man was driving a vehicle south when he failed to stay in the correct lane. As a result, his vehicle traveled over the center line and collided head-on with another vehicle. The man was apparently the only person in the first vehicle, and there were at least one adult and three children in the second vehicle.

The incident resulted in the driver of the first vehicle and a child in the second vehicle suffering fatal injuries. The child's age was not given in the report. The driver of the second vehicle and two other children were transported to hospitals in order to be treated for undisclosed injuries. It was unclear what factors may have contributed to the crash.

When car accidents have fatal outcomes, the aftermath can be harrowing and confusing. Though this Arkansas incident resulted in the death of the driver considered at fault, the family of the deceased child and the surviving injured parties may have reason to file civil claims against the man's estate. Wrongful death and personal injury claims may be warranted, and information on these legal options may be useful to those who suffered damages.
