Compared to head-on collisions and T-bone accidents, a lot of people take rear-end accidents for granted. However, they can still cause long-lasting injuries or even death if the crash is hard enough. One driver in Florida learned this the hard way after he crashed into the back of a passenger vehicle.
A couple from Moultrie, GA, and their 1-year-old daughter were all killed in a rear-end collision as they were traveling to Disney World for a Labor Day holiday trip. The crashed happened at 4 AM in Lake County, Florida. Both parents died at the scene of the accident. The 1-year-old died at the hospital.
The driver of the other vehicle was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. It is unknown whether charges were filed, or if the people killed were wearing their seatbelts.
Rear-end collisions are a major cause of whiplash injuries due to the shock and direction of the crash, but they can also kill as seen in today’s story. In most rear-end collision cases it is the car with front-end damage that is the responsible party. As with any injury case, the responsible party must compensate the other for what happened.
