Nine hospitalized after car crash

Many times a car accident results in severe injury or death. Fortunately, this was recently averted in Greenville County's neighbor, Pickens County. Nine high school students on their way to school were injured when a car crash occurred outside Liberty High School. One vehicle is said to have turned in front of another, causing the car accident.

As a result, all nine students were taken to either Cannon Memorial Hospital in Pickens or Greenville Memorial Hospital in Greenville County. The injuries suffered by the students were considered minor, but they were still taken to the emergency room as a precaution. Pickens County School District's representative stated that the parents of the students were also notified of the accident.

Despite the fact that there were no serious injuries, one student driver was cited for negligent driving. There were no other citations issued. Regardless of who was at fault in this car accident, these students are no different than anyone else who is simply going about their daily lives. Although students can be at a higher risk due to their inexperience behind the wheel, any kind of car crash can result in injury.

It is paramount for anyone driving a vehicle to be alert and focused on the task at hand. Unfortunately, not everyone takes driving seriously, causing many car crashes. When this happens, those involved in the car accident deserve fair and just compensation for their injuries, pain and suffering. An attorney devoted to helping victims recover the financial damages to which they are entitled may assist in holding negligent or reckless parties accountable.
