Omaha, NE (April 16, 2021) – Five people sustained injuries following a car accident that occurred on Thursday evening, April 15, according to local law enforcement.
Around 7:00 p.m., emergency crews were called to the site of the multi-vehicle collision, which happened at the junction of Highways 57 and 32, south of the Stanton County area. County authorities say that a westbound pickup truck pulled into the path of a southbound SUV, causing the wreck. It’s unclear how many victims were traveling in each vehicle, though at least five were transported to an area medical center for further evaluation.
The investigation into the wreck is ongoing.
Our thoughts are with the victims, their families, and everyone else who was injured in this accident.
Car Accidents in Nebraska
More than 1,000 people are hospitalized each year with injuries from collisions throughout Nebraska. The majority of accidents are caused by distracted drivers sharing the road. Nearly 40% of accidents throughout the United States occur at intersections caused by drivers who run red lights or pass through stop signs. Not only are victims forced to struggle moving forward, but their families are often forced to deal with the stacking financial burdens, lost income, and emotional consequences.
The unfortunate truth is that the majority of accidents throughout the state of Nebraska are a result of driver negligence. Although we can be diligent and in control of our actions while driving, there is little we can do to ensure others act in the same responsible manner. The fact that so many people are injured in preventable accidents is concerning. When victims are injured in accidents, it is crucial that they reach out to a car accident attorney in Nebraska as soon as possible. In some cases, accident victims are able to hold those at fault accountable for their actions and recover compensation to alleviate the costs of medical treatment and more. Working with a trusted, effective, and competent legal team can make a huge difference in your ability to get the justice and compensation you deserve from those who cause you harm.
