Waterloo driver hospitalized after crash dies

A woman from Waterloo who was involved in a car crash on Sept. 12 died due to injuries sustained in the accident. Reports say the other person allegedly ran a stop sign and collided with the female driver's car. No mention was made of whether or not the other driver was impaired.

The accident occurred at 6:47 p.m. at the intersection of Kimbell Avenue and Shaulis Road. The woman was driving a Ford Escort south on Kimball when her vehicle collided with a Dodge truck going west on Shaulis. The woman was taken to Covenant Medical Center first, and then she was flown to Iowa City. The 66-year-old woman passed away the next day. The 22-year-old driver of the truck was not taken to the hospital. Both vehicles had passengers who were treated at Covenant Medical Center and released. A 7-year-old boy was in the woman's car, and a 23-year-old male was in the other vehicle. All individuals involved were wearing seat belts at the time of the crash.

Reckless drivers often cause car accidents, and when this happens they are usually responsible for damages. Waterloo police have not released any information indicating who was at fault.

When people are involved in a car crash that is not their fault, perhaps when hit by a distracted driver, the accident can change their lives forever. If a person has been the victim of an accident, they may be entitled to compensation to recover from medical expenses and pain and suffering. An attorney experienced in assisting car accident victims may be able to help establish fault and explain what a person is owed. A personal injury claim may also entitle victims to compensation for property damage or lost wages they are unable to earn in the future due to their injuries.
