A car accident on Sept. 20 in Ontario left four people, including two minor children, injured. According to reports, the two-car crash in Gloucester resulted in an 8-year-old boy and a 7-year-old girl being taken to the hospital for treatment of injuries to their heads and chests. Once at the hospital, the boy was reported to be in stable condition, but the girl was listed in serious condition.
The auto accident took place on Blair Road at around 8:54 a.m. Two vehicles that were traveling near the Highway 174 overpass became involved in an accident in which one of the cars rolled. Ottawa police are reportedly still investigating the details of what led up to the crash.
In addition to the two children who were injured, a 45-year-old female driver in the children’s vehicle suffered from a back injury. After her car rolled, the woman reportedly had to be extricated from the vehicle by firefighters. She was later listed in stable condition at the hospital. A 44-year-old man who was in the other vehicle sustained injuries to his back and neck. He was transported to the hospital and reported to be in stable condition.
Following an accident that involves multiple vehicles, it may not be immediately apparent which driver was at fault. When the driver at fault is determined, a victim injured in the accident may wish to seek compensation by filing a personal injury complaint. A lawyer may be able to help the victim to establish the liability of the driver by gathering relevant evidence to present to a judge in court.
