4 die in fatal West Virginia car accident

Car accidents are an unfortunate occurrence on many roadways. The impact of a car accident can cause life changing injuries to the individuals involved in the accident and to the accident victim's families. West Virginia roads are heavily traveled and have a propensity for car accidents. Recently, the propensity for a car accident came to fruition in a fatal accident.

The West Virginia State Police were recently called to a tragic head-on car accident that occurred on Interstate 79. The first vehicle was traveling in the northbound lane of Interstate 79. While traveling, the car crossed through the grassy median and entered the southbound lane. The details of the car accident that have been released do not contain any information about the reasoning behind the car crossing the median.

When the first car entered the southbound lane of Interstate 79, it collided in a head-on crash with the second car. Each vehicle held a driver and a passenger. All four people involved in the accident were declared dead as a direct result of the car accident.

The driver of the first car was a 20 year old male, who was traveling with another 19 year old male. It was reported the two young males in the first car were traveling back from the University of Charleston after participating in school orientation activities. The second car contained a male driver and his 88 year old father.

Fatal car accidents can be extremely difficult to manage and many times can result in a wrongful death lawsuit. An experienced attorney can help the victim's families effectively deal with a wrongful death lawsuit to receive the appropriate compensation for their loss.
