Multi-vehicle crash injures 2

On Aug. 26, an accident involving two cars and an ambulance in East Bridgewater at approximately 1:30 p.m. left two individuals injured, according to police. The ambulance was heading towards a nearby hospital with an injured person.

Authorities stated that the multi-vehicle accident transpired when a woman driving in the east lane of Route 106 struck a westbound vehicle at the intersection of Spring Street and Route 106 after attempting to make a left-hand turn. The impact of the crash caused her car to collide with the ambulance.

Emergency medical personnel who arrived at the scene with ambulances took the injured person who was in the damaged ambulance and the drivers of both cars to a nearby hospital for treatment. According to the report, no one was fatally injured in the crash. None of the rescue crew members in the ambulance were injured and the ambulance was only minimally damaged. The investigation into the accident was ongoing, as reported.

Anytime an individual incurs car accident injuries and it is believed that the crash was caused by another, the injured victim may be eligible to pursue compensation by filing a personal injury claim in a civil court. In order to receive restitution for their accident-related losses, the injured party must prove that the accident was caused by a negligent or reckless driver. A local attorney experienced in personal injury claims may be able to find evidence to substantiate the claim of negligence from police reports and witness statements. Any charges filed against the driver may also serve as proof of negligence. In a successful outcome, the plaintiff might be able to hold the driver liable for damages including medical expenses, income losses and property damages.
