EDEN PRAIRIE MN CAR ACCIDENT LAWYER
A car crash near Highway 101 at Choctaw Circle in Eden Prairie resulted in the death of one driver and life-threatening injuries to another driver around 10 p.m. Wednesday evening. According to State Patrol, a Honda Civic traveling southbound on Highway 101 veered in front of oncoming traffic, resulting in a head-on collision with a Chevrolet Silverado headed northbound.
The driver of the Honda died from injuries sustained during the crash. The driver of the truck sustained life-threatening injuries and was taken from the Eden Prairie car crash to Hennepin County Medical Center, according to Minnesota State Patrol’s incident report.
“We won’t know if the deceased driver had alcohol in her system until after we get the medical examiner’s report,” the State Patrol officer said. “We do know that the driver of the Chevrolet had no indication of alcohol in his system.” Minnesota State Patrol will do a crash reconstruction to determine the cause of fatal auto accident, which would be because of distraction from cell phone use, texting, falling asleep at the wheel or many other causes. Our car accident lawyers have seen each of these causes in our injury cases.
“We will see if there were any barriers on the road that could have caused the injury accident and take a look at the vehicle’s black boxes to reconstruct the crash scene,” the officer said. “We also had one witness to the crash which will help with the reconstruction. One thing we try to do is pinpoint where the crash occurred. We try to determine the speed of the vehicles. There is a sensor that can tell the speed of the vehicle — if a seat belt was used. It’s not a true indication of the speed, but we will compare that to the witness statement.” The investigation of this Eden Prairie car accident will take some time, so the family and their car accident attorneys have to be patient.
