Five Injured in Highway 75 Rear-End Collision Chain Reaction
Posted By The Carlson Law Firm || 23-Nov-2011
Five people were injured in a Sherman, Texas accident involving four vehicles, last night, Department of Public Safety officials said.
According to authorities, the accident occurred near the FM 691 overpass, when cars on the highway failed to merge into a singular lane through a construction zone. Although one car slowed, the vehicle behind it failed to lower its speed, causing it to rear-end the car in front and spark a chain reaction of collisions.
The five people injured were transported to TMC with injuries that are not believed to be life-threatening.
Although many rear-ending accidents in Texas seem to be minor, vehicle bumpers conditions following a collision may not be a good indicator of physical damage endured by passengers and drivers within cars, trucks and SUV’s. Some of the injuries vehicle occupants may suffer, include:
- Cervical spine injury (also known as whiplash)
- Lumbar spine injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Injuries to the head or face (sometimes caused by defective seat belts of defective airbags)
