Posted on Thursday, February 14th, 2019 at 3:48 am
At least six people sustained various injuries following a car accident on Winters Freeway last Monday morning.
According to police reports, a blue Dodge Durango was heading south on Winters Freeway when, for yet unknown reasons, it entered the opposing lanes after striking a pole. The Dodge then collided head-on with a white Ford Fiesta that was traveling along the northbound lanes.
Occupants from both vehicles, four from Durango and two in the Fiesta, sustained injuries from the force of impact. They were all transported to a local hospital for treatment. Police say that a 27-year-old man in the Fiesta is in serious condition. Among the injured victims is a 1-year-old boy who was restrained in a rear-facing car seat.
No charges have been made as police conduct an investigation.
We would like to express our deepest sympathies to the friends and families of the injured victims. We pray for their full recovery as we hope that the Abilene Police Department will do everything to bring those responsible to justice.
Injuries caused by vehicle collisions can vary from crash to crash. Some injuries may heal within a span of days while others could paralyze a victim’s body for a month. The most commonly known car accident injuries include neck and chest and head and back injuries. Broken and ligament damages are also quite common.
Sometimes, a car accident can cause serious injuries to multiple parties—and filing a claim can get complicated. To make sure your claim is successful, you need to gather supporting evidence and documents that can back up your claim. It could be a detailed account of the accident you are involved in or documents indicating the extent of injuries you sustained. These may include a video or photograph of the scene, police reports, and medical records, to name a few.
