Auto accident on Virginia road leaves 1 dead, 4 injured

Residents of Lynchburg, Virginia, likely understand the risks of the road. A split second can mean the difference between safety and injury; a single reckless or negligent driver can cause multiple injuries or deaths. One driver in an accident that occurred on Tuesday, April 29, is being charged with failure to yield the right of way to another vehicle.

The accident, which involved a Honda Civic and a Chevrolet Malibu, occurred on Route 58 in another state. A 77-year-old woman from a nearby state was a passenger in the Honda Civic, which was traveling east on the road.

The Honda Civic was hit by the Chevy Malibu when the driver of the Malibu pulled the car out of a private driveway without properly yielding to oncoming traffic. In addition to the failure to yield charge, the driver of the Malibu was also charged with operating a vehicle on a suspended license.

The driver of the Honda Civic, the driver of the Chevy Malibu and a passenger in the Malibu were all transported to Danville Regional Medical Center. All reportedly suffered injuries that were not life threatening.

The 77-yead old passenger in the Honda Civic died as a result of the accident, according to Virginia State Police. The accident occurred around 11 a.m.

Losing a loved one in a car accident brings sudden grief and major life changes to a family. As grief begins to settle, loved ones often have questions about the accident or serious financial concerns related to the accident or the sudden loss of life. Seeking a personal injury claim is one way to possibly cover damages and financial needs while uncovering answers about an accident's cause.
