There’s usually little to no way of telling when a Wisconsin car accident might occur. While there may be signs that signal high risks for motor vehicle accidents, such as cars weaving in their lanes or drivers operating vehicles at excessive speeds, one just never knows when an actual collision may take place. In fact, people could be sitting at home, completely unsuspecting, and have a car suddenly crash right through their house.
A similar incident occurred just shy of 7 p.m. on a recent Monday. An investigation was launched immediately following the crash that included the full shutdown of the road where it took place so investigators could conduct a re-enactment of the accident to gather details as to what or who may have caused it. This type of post-accident practice is not uncommon, especially when extenuating circumstances exist, such as serious personal injuries or significant property damage.
In this particular situation, what is known so far is that a man was driving a car that supposedly smashed into another vehicle, then crashed right through a home situated near the road. Thankfully, none of the residents inside the home were injured in the accident. The same cannot be said for the driver of the car that was struck, however; that person suffered life-threatening injuries and was transported to a nearby medical facility for emergency treatment.
The driver of the car that appears to have caused the accident is suspected of operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol. Motor vehicle accidents like this one often lead to civil litigation when recovering victims or others who have suffered an injury or property damage seek restitution in court. When considering such claims, many Wisconsin residents seek consultation with experienced personal injury attorneys who are well-versed in state law and can provide effective counsel.
