A Wisconsin car accident this weekend left three motorists with injuries. Records show the crash happened at around 2 p.m. on Saturday, at the intersection of South Trail Road and Wisconsin 42 in Egg Harbor, Wisconsin.
A story published by the Green Bay Press-Gazette explained that a woman from Wilmette, Illinois, was driving along Wisconsin 42 when a vehicle suddenly pulled out into her path from South Trail Road. The woman was unable to stop in time and the two vehicles collided.
The impact of the crash left both drivers and a passenger from one of the vehicles seriously injured. Paramedics transported the victims to a local hospital for treatment.
The driver responsible for causing the crash was ticketed for failing to yield the right of way after she claimed she did not see the other vehicle.
The incident underscores the need for motorists to be more aware of their surroundings when driving.
The Green Bay personal injury lawyers with Sigman, Janssen, Sewall, Pitz & Burkham explain motorists eliminating distractions in their vehicles, such as cellphones and loud stereos, can achieve this goal. Drivers should also remember to always look both right and left twice before entering traffic at an intersection.
The firm is hopeful these tips will help prevent future accidents!
