Alaska Injury Lawyer - Friday, April 30 2010
Alaska auto accidents occur with alarming regularity, and many of these crashes involve much more than a simple fender-bender between two vehicles. Accidents can involve multiple vehicles, and when this occurs the danger and risk involved for everyone in the area only rises. Sadly, such a circumstance played out in reality today when a three-car Wasilla auto accident sent nine people to the hospital, including five adults and four children.
The accident occurred at the intersection of Bogard and Engstrom roads at approximately 1:30 p.m. today. As of a few hours later, officials had no comment as to what could have caused the crash, but only supplied details of the fallout of the accident. Apparently, at least two people were trapped inside each of the vehicles involved in the accident, and rescue workers had to pry open the roofs and the doors of those vehicles to free the injured passengers.
Thankfully, none of the injuries reported appeared at the time to be life-threatening, but the children were described generally as being five years old and younger, which means that they could be vulnerable to injuries more so than older, larger adults. Authorities stated that they would supply a written statement soon that provides the details of the investigation, but it appears that at this point no one is sure what led to the collision.
Unfortunately, this latest incident will only add to the existing statistics regarding Alaska auto accidents. More than 10,000 Alaska auto accidents occur every year, and more than 3,000 people are injured as a result. In addition, almost 100 people are killed in Alaska auto accidents every year, which means that approximately 60 people are injured and two people are killed in these collisions every week somewhere in the state.
