More examination expected in Moss Point car accident

Every year, thousands of people are killed and injured in crashes involving vehicles. Often, these accidents are caused by the fault of distracted drivers who just happened to take their attention off of the road at the wrong time. Texting and driving has also influenced the rise of collisions and so it is more important than ever for people to pay attention to the environment around them. When someone is killed or injured in a car accident, whether in Corinth or in some other part of the state, there can be many challenges that face the victims and their families, and their only course of action may be to hold the party at fault financially responsible.

An accident reconstructionist with the Mississippi Highway Patrol announced that more inspection will be conducted to determine the cause of a crash that occurred in the southern part of the state. The car accident killed one driver and resulted in minor injuries to the other driver involved. As of yet, the cause of the accident is unknown, but alcohol has been ruled out as a factor.

The auto accident occurred when a 46-year-old man tried to turn left at an intersection and his Honda collided with a Ford sedan. The man died after he was thrown from the Honda. The other driver was treated at a hospital for his injuries.

If the accident investigation reveals that the 46-year-old was at fault, the driver of the Ford may be able to sue his estate for the damages to his vehicle and the medical expenses incurred in the accident. Likewise if the findings show the opposite, the family of the deceased driver may be able to file a civil lawsuit against the other driver for their pain and suffering.
