Head-on Auto Accident Involving Two Brothers Kills One in Oregon

Head-on Auto Accident Involving Two Brothers Kills One in Oregon

Two brothers driving in opposite directions were involved in a head-on auto accident Tuesday, July 13, just south of the Hood River in Oregon on I-35. The accident critically injured one brother and killed his wife. The other brother was treated for possible injuries, but they were not serious.

One brother driving a tow truck was headed south, while his younger brother was headed north in a 2007 Toyota Corolla. Authorities say both vehicles crossed into opposite lanes before the crash. It is believed the brother in the Corolla was not wearing his seatbelt. His wife, who was killed, was wearing hers.

There can be no doubt that seatbelts save lives. However, in an auto accident where a smaller vehicle is hit head on by a larger truck, it may not matter if there is a seatbelt or an airbag. It is an unfortunate truth that many people who take precautions, such as wearing a seatbelt and driving defensively, are the victims of auto accidents while others who are more cavalier survive.

If you or a loved one has been injured in an auto accident anywhere in the nation, please contact the Accident Lawyer's Network to find an experienced personal injury lawyer in your area.

Wrong Way Vehicle Kills One in Auto Accident on I 25

An allegedly drunk driver took the wrong ramp and began driving south in the north lanes of I-25 near Thornton, Colorado on July 5. She hit at least one vehicle on the Thornton Parkway and continued south until she hit a station wagon that attempted to get out of the way. A 22-year-old woman was killed in the passenger seat and her male driver injured.

A witness to the wrong-way driving called 911 as soon as he saw her. The witness said the wrong-way driver was traveling 50 to 55 mph in the lane closest to the median. She appeared to make no attempt to stop or exit the highway, even though vehicles were braking, flashing their lights, and getting out of her way.

The drunk driver who caused the accident was taken to the hospital and then booked. According to Colorado State Patrol, she was charged with vehicular homicide, two counts of vehicular assault, hit and run, DUI, driving the wrong way on a divided highway, careless driving, and failure to remain at the scene of an accident.

The victim who lost her life graduated in May from Colorado State University with a double major. The drunk driver has various traffic violations dating back ten years, but several of these were apparently dismissed.
