Iowa crash injures both drivers

Two cars collided early in the morning on Dec. 15 in Cedar Rapids, causing injuries to the occupants of both vehicles. The cause of the accident was still under investigation at the time of the report.

At around 4 a.m., two vehicles traveling along Highway 30 in Cedar County collided with each other near Lowden. Authorities reported that one driver, 19 years old, was driving in an eastbound direction and may have crossed over the center line and crashed into an oncoming westbound car.

Both drivers were injured in the car accident. The westbound driver, 61 years old, was taken to Cedar Rapids' St. Luke's Hospital via ambulance. The eastbound driver was transported to the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics by helicopter. The victims' identities were not released by the Iowa State Patrol officials due to the ongoing investigation.

If it's found that the driver who crossed the center line did so due to distraction or negligence, he or she might be cited. In similar cases, the driver of the car that was hit may choose to discuss options for compensation with a personal injury lawyer since injury accidents can cause a great deal of physical and financial hardship, not to mention the burden it places on the victim and the family of the victim. If an individual is found to have caused an accident and charged in criminal court, the chance of success of a personal injury claim might increase. The claim might include a mention of any incurred medical expenses as well as lost wages from missed work.
