Three die in crash on the way to softball tournament

It is difficult to comprehend just how dangerous driving can be, given just how common and innocuous it seems. People get in their vehicles and drive from one location to another without giving a second thought to whether they will indeed make it there safe and sound, seldom considering the possibility of an accident. But, an unexpected accident can take place in the blink of an eye and change the lives of everyone involved.

A recent car crash in Indiana highlighted the transient nature of life, with three people dying in the accident. According to authorities, a 40-year-old man, 42-year-old woman and 19-year-old girl died in a crash on the way to a softball tournament when an oncoming pickup truck drifted across the fog line and hit their vehicle head-on.

The two elderly people died at the scene of the accident with the younger female passing away at the hospital. There were two children in the car as well, an 8-year-old and a 9-year-old, who were also transported to the hospital and were undergoing surgery.

An unexpected accident leads to unexpected emotional and financial costs. Medical treatment and funeral expenses are tangible expenses but the pain and suffering one goes through and the trauma of losing a young life is unquantifiable but equally real. Though it may seem like the last thing on an accident victim's mind, holding the negligent person responsible for causing a motor vehicle accident can be one way to get closure and also to claim these expenses through a lawsuit holding the negligent driver responsible for causing the accident.
