An Oregon car crash near Astoria involving two vehicles sent a number of people to the hospital late last week, and has led to an Oregon reckless driving citation and six counts of reckless endangerment for the 16-year-old driver of one of the cars involved, according to the Daily Astorian newspaper.
The paper, quoting the Oregon State Police, reports that the accident took place on US-30, west of Wauna Mill. The car driven by the teenager “began fishtailing” after passing another vehicle, and then crossed the centerline into oncoming traffic where it collided with a pick-up truck. Oddly, the car’s impact mark was on the front passenger’s side – indicating that the Oregon teenage driver may have been trying to turn around at the moment of the Astoria injury car accident.
The teen driver and two of his passengers were injured in the Oregon car crash, seriously in the case of one of the passengers. The driver and all three passengers in the truck were also treated at area hospitals for injuries the paper describes as “non-life threatening.”
If you have been injured in an Oregon car accident, especially one involving a possibly reckless teen driver, it is important that you or your loved ones contact an Oregon auto accident attorney as soon as possible after the initial trauma of the Oregon car crash.
An experienced Oregon personal injury lawyer with a specialization in traffic and other car crashes can help assess the seriousness of your accident and advise you on the best ways to obtain the justice you deserve for injuries that were someone else’s fault.
