Multiple-vehicle accident leaves one dead, four injured

Accidents involving multiple vehicles often result in drivers and vehicle occupants sustaining serious or even fatal injuries. A recent accident that happened in the Alabama city of Mobile illustrates the dangers associated with multiple-vehicle crashes.

During the early morning hours, police responded to reports of a massive crash in the George Wallace Tunnel. According to the police report, a total of eight motor vehicles were involved in the accident including five dump trucks, one pickup truck, one SUV and one motorcycle.

Upon arriving on the accident scene, first responders pronounced the 32-year-old motorcycle driver dead. An additional four individuals who were all believed to be occupants in the SUV were also injured in the accident. All four injured individuals were transported to a nearby hospital for treatment of their numerous injuries. Police continue to investigate what may have caused the multiple-vehicle crash.

In addition to physical injuries, road crews were called upon to clean up potentially dangerous and hazardous material that was leaked during the crash. The accident resulted in the tunnel being closed for nearly eight hours.

While it’s not yet clear what factors may have contributed to the fatal crash, there are several possible causes. Drivers traveling through tunnels are often advised to stay in their lane. It’s possible the accident was caused by a driver attempting to maneuver his or her vehicle around other vehicles. It’s also possible that excessive speed was a factor. If one driver was forced to slow or stop suddenly this could have potentially set off a chain reaction, causing a pile-up to occur.

As more details emerge of what exactly caused this tragic accident, the family and friends of the 32-year-old motorcyclist are left mourn the loss of their loved one. Hopefully, results of the accident investigation will help answer questions of what transpired and who may held accountable.

I have the utmost respect for Rip Andrews and the lawyers at MRB Law. They took a case that others would have stayed clear of because the issue of state immunity was involved. Through determination and unwavering commitment they were able to a find resolution to an extremely difficult matter.

"They...brought justice to my family through a multi-million dollar verdict ."
These lawyers took a complicated issue, revealed the truth in a way 12 jurors unfamiliar with the topic could understand, and brought justice to my family through a multi-million dollar verdict. They were able to relate my “invisible” medical condition to the jury better than I can to my own friends. And because of that, the jury hugged me and cried with me when it was all over. That meant more to me than any amount of money.
