TEEN DRIVER CAUSES FATAL CRASH – CAR ACCIDENT ATTORNEY MN
The Minnesota State Patrol reported today that a 66-year-old Dodge Center man was killed in a head-on crash on Minnesota Highway 56 north of Hayfield early this morning. The MN State Patrol said the man died in the collision. The teenage driver of the car who caused the head on crash suffered serious injuries and was taken to the Mayo Clinic. This is the type of tragic case that our top car accident lawyers handle frequently.
The report said the teenager was driving northbound on Highway 56 when he tried to pass another vehicle and hit the southbound car driven by the man, shortly after 5:30 a.m. Law enforcement had the highway closed for four hours this morning as they re-constructed the crash, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation. Our car accident attorneys have represented many people injured or killed is this type of situation. The State Patrol generally does a good job with their investigation of a fatal car crash, however sometimes when they are having a busy night or the weather is bad, the quality of the accident reconstruction can be rushed and therefore not complete. It is for this reason that our auto accident lawyers like to get involved in MN car accident cases as soon as possible, so we can have our own reconstructionist look at the crash scene as well.
In addition to the State Patrol, emergency personnel from Hayfield Fire and Rescue, Hayfield Ambulance, Dodge Center Fire and Rescue, Dodge Center Ambulance, Dodge County Sheriff’s Office, and Gold Cross Ambulance helped with the accident. Again, our auto accident lawyers have found that while additional departments serve an important purpose, having so many people at the accident scene may add to the confusion and reduce the thoroughness of a thoughtful and complete investigation after someone is killed in a fatal auto accident.
