In late October, five people were hurt in a collision between a fire truck and a car in Washington, D.C.
According to WUSA-TV, the accident happened just after noon on Oct. 29 at the intersection of Queen’s Stroll Place and 53rd Street in Southeast D.C.
The accident is still under investigation, so it is not yet known what exactly led to the traffic crash or who was at fault. Authorities did say, however, that four firefighters and one civilian were injured in the collision. The four firefighters were all taken to a nearby hospital to be treated for their injuries; their conditions were not immediately available, but it does not seem that any of them are in danger of succumbing to their injuries.
The civilian, however, did suffer life-threatening injuries. Authorities have not described his or her condition beyond that point. We wish him or her the best as he or she seeks to recover and extend our sympathies to his or her family.
As a personal injury attorney who serves the D.C. are and surrounding Maryland and Virginia communities, I am used to hearing stories like this. However, I thought it was worth relating this story to my readers because not everyone realizes that accidents like this — in broad daylight, involving something as large and conspicuous as a fire truck — can happen.
The truth is, traffic accidents can change your life for the worse in an instant when you least expect it. I’ve dedicated my career to helping car, truck and motorcycle accident victims get their lives back on track.
