Head-on car accident sends three to hospital in Greenville

The school year has recently begun, parents and their children routinely get up early to prepare for the day, and carpoolers often find themselves trying to get ahead of rush-hour traffic on their way into work. All the while, commuters are unsuspecting of the dangers that could lie ahead. Recently, a car accident in Greenville County sent three people to the hospital and resulted in criminal charges for one.

At 5:33 in the morning in the southbound lanes of Interstate 385, a 63-year-old woman in a Pontiac Grand Am was driving the wrong way. She crashed head-on into a Ford Crown Victoria. The force of the impact then caused the Crown Victoria to collide with a 2000 Ford Ranger.

All three parties were rushed to Greenville Memorial Hospital for observation and treatment. There are currently no reports as to the medical status of any of the car accident victims. However, it has been confirmed that the driver of the Pontiac Grand Am was charged with driving the wrong way on controlled access.

While the additional details surrounding the cause of the car accident remain unclear, it is safe to say that the victims who may have sustained injuries in the crash could seek to pursue compensation from the Greenville County driver found at fault. Within the parameters of personal injury law, individuals who find they are suffering due to the negligence of another driver may be entitled to monetary damages to help compensate for their pain and suffering and possible medical costs. Legal counsel specializing in personal injury law may be able to provide helpful information to parties seeking justice.
