Man Arrested After Crashing Car Into Van and Building
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
A parked van was involved in an
accident in Huntington, West Virginia after a driver slammed his car into it and
it went through the glass front wall of a business. The driver reported
to police that his tire blew which was the cause of him entering the parking
lot of the business. The van that was forced into the building belonged
to an employee of the business and was inside the building at the time
of the crash. A second van was also struck. Police reported that the driver
did not have insurance or a driver’s license and an illegal substance
was found on him. The police reported that charges are pending and there
were no reports of injuries.
Vehicle accidents not only happen on the road but can happen on sidewalks
and even buildings. These types of accidents injure drivers, passengers
and even pedestrians who may be on the sidewalk or in the buildings where
the accident occurs. Most times these accidents are caused by driver error
or distracted driving. Yes, we all hear about or even know someone who
has accidently had the car in drive when they thought it was in reverse,
but these accidents are no laughing matter. Serious injuries can occur,
and that means major medical bills, possible physical therapy, mental
and physical stress and even lost wages from work. Consulting an attorney
can help victims determine if legal action should be taken and work with
them to receive the compensation they deserve.
