A Diamondale, Michigan man, was involved in early morning accident when his vehicle slammed into a Marathon gas station. The car caught fire after he hit a pole in the building. County officials reported that the gas station was severely damaged at the front entrance. The driver received treatment for minor injuries, and officials are investigating if alcohol was a factor in the crash.
Vehicle accidents are not uncommon, and unfortunately, vehicle versus buildings are usually caused by impaired or distracted driving. These accidents can cause serious injuries not only the driver and passengers in the vehicle but to innocent people who are inside the buildings or even standing on sidewalks. Luckily the gas station appeared to be empty when the Michigan man plowed through the building, but that is not always the case. These accidents can cause detrimental injuries and life-altering limitations not to mention mental and physical exhaustion. All of these can produce large medical bills, long-term therapy needs and lost time wages. Always contact a personal injury attorney if you are involved in an accident. An experienced attorney will provide counsel to the victim who was injured by no fault of their own.
