A car crash in Madison County left three people — two adults and one infant — injured. The accident occurred on Sunday afternoon, June 13th. The cause of the accident is unknown at this time.
A news report revealed that the Madison County Sheriff's Office and HEMSI responded to the accident scene. The crash occurred near Madison County High School. According to the HEMSI spokesman, Don Webster, the incident occurred just before 3:45 p.m. on Highway 72 eastbound and Brock Road.
Webster added that three HEMSI units responded at the scene of the car crash in Madison County and transported three people to the hospital. A critically injured man and a woman with severe injuries received treatment at Huntsville Hospital Trauma Services. HEMSI took the 2-month-old infant to Huntsville Hospital for Women and Children to treat non-life-threatening injuries.
The spokesman noted that thankfully, the infant was properly restrained in their car seat. He said that prevented a more severe injury. The sheriff's office is investigating to determine what caused the accident. There is no additional information.
Motor vehicle accidents are among the leading causes of death in the United States. A car crash can either involve one vehicle or more. When it's a single vehicle, there is usually very little problem, especially if the driver was the only occupant of the car.
When the crash involves more cars, establishing liability becomes more crucial. Since Alabama is a fault state, the at-fault driver pays compensation to the fault victim. The compensatory damages cover economic and non-economic damages. The two cover physical injury, property damages, and emotional injuries like pain and suffering.
