According to New Hampshire’s Union Leader, a 42-year-old woman from Campton was killed in a traffic collision on Interstate 93 when her vehicle was hit from behind, she lost control of her vehicle, and the vehicle crashed into a tree. The tree was located in the median, and the woman hit the tree with the driver’s side of her car. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
While the investigation into this crash has essentially ruled out alcohol has been a factor, it is speculated that high speeds and adverse weather conditions could have played significant roles in this crash. While adverse weather conditions are hardly the fault of motorists, driving at excessive speeds is. When motorists refuse to adhere to the rules of the road, the results are often characterized by destruction created by traffic collisions, and incidences of wrongful death. Furthermore, even though dangerous road conditions do not appear to have played a factor in this particular crash, adverse conditions often can cause motorists to lose control of their vehicles. In the event that such conditions do cause an accident, even if just partially, then local municipalities are also at fault, and motorists can seek damages from those municipalities just as they can in regards to negligent motorists.
Further investigation will undoubtedly reveal some degree of negligence that helped cause the crash. For all victims of traffic accidents, and for the families of those victims that lose their lives, it is important to know that negligent parties should and can be held accountable in a court of law. Accidents need to be thoroughly reconstructed and all details need to be given proper consideration.
