Two people were injured as a result of a three-vehicle collision last week in Auburn, Alabama. According to OA Now News, the crash happened around 12:30 p.m. Wednesday at the intersection of Farmville Road and North College Street.
Sgt. Joe Morris, a spokesman for the Auburn Police Department, stated that the accident occurred when a female driver in a 2000 Chevrolet Malibu sedan was traveling east along Farmville Road. She did not stop at the intersection and plowed into the side of a southbound box truck. The impact of that collision caused the large truck to tip and roll over on its side. The truck landed on top of a 2005 Acura SUV traveling in the opposite lane.
The driver of the SUV that was crushed had to be cut from the wreckage before rescue crews could airlift her to a local hospital for treatment of life-threatening injuries. The driver responsible for the crash also suffered minor injuries and was taken in for treatment as well.
Auburn police say they are still investigating what factors may have contributed to the crash.
The Birmingham Personal Injury Lawyers with Norris Injury Lawyers say that distracted or careless driving often leads to accidents that involve a red light or stop sign being ran by another driver. That’s why the firm asks that motorists eliminate distractions and focus on the road in order to prevent an Alabama Car Accident.
