Causes of motor vehicle collisions vary widely, though some reasons are more prevalent than others such as those that involve drug or alcohol impaired motorists. For example, in April 2021 on Old Baptist Road, a teenage girl was injured after her car crashed into a nearby house. The police later found out that the driver was the same person who crashed into another car on Ten Rod Road only three minutes earlier. The female driver admitted to using an illegal substance before operating the vehicle and did not remember any of the events leading up to the collision. At the border of North Kingstown and Warwick, a passenger was killed and three were injured after a drunk driver crashed their vehicle into a bridge abutment. The 19-year-old vehicle operator was charged on counts of speeding and driving while intoxicated. If you or someone you love has been hit by a drunk driver, contact a car accident attorney in North Kingstown to determine your eligibility to seek compensation by holding the intoxicated motorist liable for your physical injuries, property damage, and pain and suffering.
An unexpected medical emergency can also result in auto-related injuries, like when a truck crashed into a nearby Dollar Tree in 2021 after the operator experienced a medical emergency and accidently hit the accelerator instead of the brakes. Busy intersections are frequently the site of wrecks as well, such as the intersection of Devil’s Foot Road and Namcook Road. In 2018, a woman died after multiple vehicles crashed at the intersection of Quaker Lane and Stony Lane.
Motorcycles can also be involved in North Kingstown vehicle accidents, such as in 2019 when a car backed into a motorcyclist traveling along Tower Hill Road. The driver of the motorcycle was later pronounced dead at the hospital. City data reported that five people were involved in fatal North Kingstown car accidents in 2018 and five more in 2019. Serious auto accidents don’t only affect those involved, but also the people dear to them. When a family member dies in a tragic accident due to another person’s negligence, such as reckless speeding, certain related individuals may be eligible to file a wrongful death claim in order to seek compensation for their losses. These claims can be filed if the driver causing the death was acting recklessly regardless of if they intended to cause damage or not, and a Rhode Island personal injury lawyer experienced with wrongful death claims can discuss legal options with the family.More Information About the Town
