On Friday night, a collision occurred involving an Uber car and a police cruiser. Deputy Sullivan and a newly hired deputy were traveling on State Route 434 when the squad car collided with a 2001 Volkswagen operated by 73-year-old Robert Williams. The Volkswagen was traveling northbound on Ronald Reagan Boulevard when the collision occurred in the intersection. The passenger of the Uber car, 28-year-old Corey Allicock, succumbed to his injuries in the hospital two days after the crash.
Determining who is responsible for an auto accident may not always be simple. Even in the instance when it seems clear that the driver is responsible for the crash, the victim may also have grounds to file a case against additional parties. Vehicle manufacturers, companies of commercial drivers, mechanical crews, and engineers that design roadways could be responsible for an auto accident. There are no forms of acceptable negligence, especially when it leads to the injuries and death of other individuals. Therefore, contacting an experienced car accident attorney can help to hold the at-fault individuals accountable. If you have been the victim of an auto accident, it is crucial that you consult a skilled auto accident lawyer.
