Four people were injured as the result of an Alabama Auto Accident last Tuesday in Gadsden. According to an article released by WBRC News, the crash occurred at approximately 11 p.m. at the corner of Springfield Avenue and E. Meighan Boulevard.
Reports from Officer Jeff Hooper, of the Gadsden Police Department, indicate that the Alabama Car Accident happened after the driver of an ambulance with its lights and sirens on was heading east along Meighan Boulevard. The driver of a southbound 2008 Kia Spectra failed to yield right of way to the emergency vehicle and suddenly struck the ambulance in the intersection.
Two motorists traveling behind the ambulance witnessed the accident with the Kia occur. Both witnesses had stopped their vehicles in the eastbound lanes along Mieghan Boulevard to survey the damage of the collision, when the drivers of a 2005 Chevy Cavalier and 1995 Ford Crown Victoria slammed into the rear of their vehicles.
Those drivers later told Officer Hooper that they followed the green light only to find that traffic was not moving, and that they were unable to stop in time due to wet road conditions from rain earlier in the evening. The drivers of the automobiles involved were transported to local hospitals to receive treatment for numerous injuries sustained in the accidents.
The Alabama Personal Injury Lawyers with Norris Injury Lawyers wish that all the victims of this unfortunate accident have speedy and full recoveries.
