Being in one wreck is bad enough, but sometimes one wreck can actually be two collisions with is going to put those involved at a much higher risk of injury or fatality. It can also become a liability nightmare as the insurance companies and their lawyers all try to point the blame as someone else.
Woman Dies in Double-Impact Crash in Cave City
A woman died Sunday around 11:20 a.m. when her car was hit by two other cars on Kentucky Highway 90 near Harry King Road. According to Kentucky State Police, the woman was driving a 2004 Buick LaSabre north on KY-90 when another car in front of her slowed to take a left turn. Another vehicle then struck her from behind pushing her into oncoming traffic where she was hit by a Humvee.
The driver of the Buick was taken to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead. The driver of the car that rear-ended her and the drive of the Humvee were both reported as sustaining only minor injuries.
Injuries from Double Impact Crashes
When a double impact crash happens, the second impact can create new injuries or make injuries that happened in the first impact much worse, many times causing the person to die. While many times authorities are unable to tell which impact caused the death, many agree that had it not been for the second accident, the victim might still be alive.
This double-impact collision causes certain common injuries seen by EMS and trauma center workers. Some of them are:
- Traumatic Brain Injuries
- Fractured Arms/Legs
- Broken/ Displaced Ribs
- Facial Bone Injuries
- Whiplash/Soft Tissue Injuries
- Spine injuries
- Compound Fractures
- Severe Burns
