Even with minor injuries, however, there may still be medical expenses and property damage to account for. In cases of multi-vehicle accidents, how is liability determined and who is responsible for victims’ losses?

Out-of-Town Driver Gets Lost

The San Antonio crash occurred around 11 p.m. on a Friday night at the intersection of East Commerce St. and East Houston St., near Interstate 10. According to police, a woman who was not from the area become confused at the intersection, trying to figure out which stop light she was supposed to obey for the street she was on. In her confusion, the woman ended up running a red light and smashing head-on into another vehicle. A third vehicle was unable to stop in time and ended up slamming into the woman’s car. Police say all eight occupants in the three vehicles involved in the accident were able to get out safely.

Multi-Vehicle Accidents

There are a number of reasons why multi-vehicle accidents occur. One of the most common reasons is due to distracted drivers who do not see the vehicles in front of them because they are not paying attention and fail to stop, or they lose control of the vehicle and end up creating a pileup of vehicles. Poor road conditions and bad weather can also play a factor. Or, as the above accident shows, a driver who is unfamiliar with an area can easily become confused and cause a crash.
