Drivers in Wisconsin and across the country encounter a variety of different traffic signs and signals each time they get behind the wheel of a vehicle. For drivers with years of experience, it is often second nature to obey. Unfortunately, an oversight, such as failing to stop at a stop sign, can have serious consequences. In fact, a man and his dog were reportedly killed in a recent truck accident involving a utility vehicle.
Authorities cite speed entering a construction zone and inattentive driving as factors in a multi-vehicle crash near Columbus, Wisconsin, on Highway 151 last week. Helicopters and ambulances were necessary to transport five people injured in the collision, four men and a woman, to the hospital, and another man died at the scene. An investigation into the accident is ongoing, and cleanup required the closure of the northbound lanes where the crash occurred for five hours thereafter.
In Wisconsin, there are plenty of big trucks on the road. When they share road space with smaller personal passenger vehicles like yours, there can be big consequences for crashes. Today, we at Peterson Berk & Cross will take a look at the possibility of brain injury post-crash and how it may affect you.
