Intersections risky areas re Wisconsin motor vehicle accidents

Navigating crossroads in Wisconsin can be quite challenging, especially if more than one other vehicle is preparing to enter the roadway at the same time. While safety in most situations like this hinges upon each driver adhering to traffic regulations, motor vehicle accidents can occur if even one motorist is negligent. For instance, when an intersection is secured with traffic lights, risk for collision increases if someone fails to stop at a red light.

That appears to be what happened in a recent multiple vehicle crash. Investigators say the light was red when a motorist sped right through it, crashing into several other cars that had already entered the crossroads. A total of four other vehicles sustained substantial damages in the sudden collision.

Several people had to be rushed to the hospital in the near aftermath of the crash, including the driver deemed responsible. Thankfully, there were no life-threatening injuries involved. Officials later provided another detail regarding the incident that may explain why it happened. The driver who allegedly blew through a red light is said to have been intoxicated at the time.

Police say the 28-year-old man was cited for operating a motor vehicle without a valid driver's license. Wisconsin motor vehicle accidents like this one often lead to criminal charges above and beyond any personal injury claims recovering victims may choose to file in court. Evidence that citations were issued or criminal convictions obtained can be used to help substantiate personal injury claims. Anyone considering filing such a claim may first want to discuss his or her situation with an experienced personal injury attorney.
