Multi-vehicle accident with SUV results in 4 people being injured

May 12, 2016 | SUV Accidents

Car accidents, especially when they involve larger vehicles like SUVs, can impact many people and cause multiple injuries. In pile-up accidents, two cars collide, but then others may add to the impact, injuring the victims further.

When you’re in a multi-vehicle crash, the person who is to blame may not be as obvious as in other circumstances. That’s why calling the police and having them come to the scene is important. Their investigation can help you prove who was at fault, so your claim can go to the right person or so your attorney knows who to speak to about compensation.

In this case out of British Columbia, several people were injured in a crash at a local intersection. The news reported that four people were hospitalized following the serious crash in Delta, where all the vehicles hit and went off the road. According to the news from April 29, the crash happened at around 1:48 a.m. when two cars, a small sedan, and an SUV collided at an intersection one after the other.

After the collision, one of the people who was involved attempted to flee the scene, but he or she was apprehended. It’s not clear if the person was a driver of one of the vehicles. That person was taken to the hospital, as were three others who suffered minor injuries in the crash. The police haven’t said if they believe the person who was trying to flee was responsible for the crash or if drugs or alcohol were involved in the collision. Everyone was fortunate, and they are expected to survive their injuries.
