4 injured in 2-car accident in Iowa

A sudden car accident can leave you and your loved ones dealing with serious injuries and pain. You shouldn't have to deal with the costly expenses of your medical care or the loss of wages while you're recovering, which is why it's important to explore your options for compensation. You could be able to receive money from the person at fault in your accident.

An Aug. 5 news report states that a car accident involving two vehicles took place on Highway 18 in Clear Lake, Iowa, when a Chrysler being driven by an 18-year-old woman from Lake Mills crossed the centerline. When she did so, she collided with a Jeep that was being driven by a 22-year-old woman from Meservey.

The collision was head-on. The 22-year-old driver of the Jeep had a passenger, a 4-month-old child, in the vehicle. She and the child were reportedly injured and taken to the local Mercy Medical Center in North Iowa. Both were in stable condition as of the time of the report.

The 18-year-old driver of the Chrysler also had a passenger, a 17-year-old woman from Forest City. Both she and the driver had to be taken to the hospital for critical injuries. The driver has remained at Mercy Medical Center, but the 17-year-old has been taken to another location for her treatment.

Police have reported that this accident is still under investigation. They will likely be trying to find evidence of why the teen crossed the centerline and caused the accident. If they discover negligence, the police may choose to file charges against her.
