On Sunday evening, a multi-vehicle auto accident claimed the lives of two people in Milwaukee. At around 7:11 p.m., a Chevy Malibu operated by 24-year-old Kent Girmscheid, crossed the median line on Highway 16 and collided head-on with a Dodge Caravan driven by a 69-year-old man. A Chevy Blazer did not see the accident and struck the Dodge. Two individuals including Girmscheid, and the passenger in the Dodge were pronounced dead in the accident, and three others sustained injuries. The accident is under investigation.
Auto accidents are a common occurrence in the lives of Americans. It is not uncommon to read about a car accident reported by media outlets several times throughout the day. While the severity of auto accidents varies from minor to devastating, all accidents are stressful and frightening. Individuals injured or families that lose loved ones, in car accidents will likely incur medical expenses, loss of income if time off work is required, property damages, and mental anguish. Reckless and negligent driving is the most common cause of auto accidents; however, mechanical defects, design flaws, and dangerous roadways can also contribute to a traffic crash.
