Many Virginia residents have been involved in a motor vehicle accident of some sort at some point in their lives. A car crash can happen for a number of reasons, and the results may range from minor to catastrophic. However, sometimes a crash is caused by one driver's negligence, and although the driver may be affected in some way, unfortunately, often other people bear the brunt of the consequences.

In one recent case, two people were killed on Christmas Eve when a 35-year-old man driving a tractor-trailer collided with another vehicle. According to a Virginia State Police press release, the northbound tractor-trailer driver was trying to turn left into a gas station. However, as he was doing so, he crashed into the other, southbound, vehicle.

Reportedly, the 33-year-old driver of the car that was hit died from his injuries at the accident scene. An 82-year-old woman who was a passenger in that vehicle was flown to a medical center but later died from her injuries. The tractor-trailer driver was transported to a different medical center with minor injuries. He has been charged with reckless driving. Police are continuing to investigate the crash.

Sadly, this driver apparently made irresponsible choices while behind the wheel, resulting in a tragic car crash that killed two Virginia residents. The victims' family members are no doubt suffering emotionally. They may be enduring financial challenges as well, as people tend to face many unexpected expenses at these times, such as medical and funeral costs and even lost income. Often, in this type of situation, surviving family members discuss their legal options with an experienced personal injury attorney.
