Alcohol may have been involved in recent West Virginia accident

Cars are a typical mode of transportation and it's easy to forget that an accident on the road can cause serious injury. Injuries sustained in an accident can have long-term effects on a person's life. A car accident could result in soft tissue injuries, sprains, spinal cord injury, brain injury and more. If you or someone you love was injured in a car accident it's important that you have an experienced personal injury attorney on your side to protect your best interests.

A West Virginia accident on Monday sent five people to the hospital when a 31-year-old woman slammed her car into a Dodge Charger, injuring all passengers in the vehicle. A 42-year-old woman, a 71-year-old man and two teenagers were taken to the hospital with injuries ranging from minor to serious.

Police officers believe that the driver entered the interstate heading in the wrong direction and drove a mile to two miles in the wrong direction before the crash occurred. Officials believe that the woman may have been under the influence of alcohol at the time of the accident.

One passenger from the vehicle that was hit remains in the hospital and the driver who caused the accident is now facing criminal charges as a result of the crash. "It's tragic," said a member of the Charleston Police Department, "It's something we preach here at the Charleston Police Department every day. I know it's preached statewide from the Governor's highway Safety Office that you can't drink and drive. It's not worth it because this is what happens."
