Car accident sends several to hospital

A recent car accident in Iowa sent several people to the hospital. According to reports, the accident occurred in Black Hawk County when a 28-year-old man ran a stop sign and hit a car driven by a 25-year-old woman. The woman's vehicle was pushed into a ditch, rolled over and came to rest in a field.

All the occupants in the vehicle, including two children and an adult who were passengers in the car, were injured in the accident. They were taken to a hospital in an ambulance for treatment. The passengers in the other vehicle, an adult and a child, were also taken to a hospital. The man driving the car that ran the stop sign was taken by a personal vehicle to the hospital as well. Though none of the injuries were life-threatening, further details regarding the injuries suffered in the accident was not available at the time of the report.

The driver who caused the auto accident has received a citation for failing to obey a traffic control device. No other charges have been filed at this time.

Both the occupants of the other vehicle as well as the passengers in the car that ran the stop sign may be able to hold the driver liable for damages, which may include the cost of medical treatment as well as any wages lost during time spent in recovery. Using the traffic citation as evidence of negligence, those victims might pursue compensation by filing personal injury claims against the driver in civil court with the help of an attorney.
