One Dead in Hit and Run on Cane Run Road

Per WAVE3, one person died in a hit and run crash that occurred on Cane Run Road in Louisville on the evening of Sunday, October 9. 2022.  Louisville Metro Police Department is still investigating the wreck.  Police responded to the scene of the incident in the 3900 block of Cane Run Road around 8 p.m.  The initial investigation revealed that a car headed northbound on Cane Run Road, for unknown reasons, crossed over into the southbound lanes of traffic and struck head-on another vehicle occupied by three people.  A rear passenger in the vehicle with three occupants suffered fatal injuries and died at the scene of the crash.  The driver and other passengers in that vehicle were transported to UofL hospital with injuries that are believed to be non-life threatening.  The driver of the vehicle that crossed into the southbound lanes fled the scene of the incident on foot.

Head-on collision accidents are somewhat rare when compared to other types of accidents, but when head-on collisions occur, they often cause serious injury or death.  The amount of force involved in a head-on collision often leads to death or severe injuries like broken bones, spinal cord injuries, head injuries, traumatic brain injuries, torn shoulder ligaments, torn knee ligaments, internal bleeding, or internal organ damage.  If a victim is lucky to survive such a traffic crash, they often need significant medical treatment and, therefore, may be left with significant medical bills, lost wages due to not being able to work, and pain and suffering.

Motor vehicle accidents in Louisville, Kentucky, often involve a number of complicated issues like insurance laws, motor vehicle laws, and other complex legal issues.  It is crucial that you not only properly interpret the law but also effectively advocate your position and protect your rights if you desire to obtain maximum compensation for injuries sustained by you or a loved one due to a car wreck.  Dealing with insurance companies after being injured in a car crash can be extremely difficult.  The primary goal of the insurance company is to settle your injury claim for the least amount that they possibly can to save their company money.  If you don’t have a car accident lawyer, the insurance company will try to take advantage of you or your loved one.

Your main goal should be to maximize the amount of money you receive in your pocket for your injuries sustained in a car accident.  Finding the Louisville car accident lawyer that is the best fit for you can be difficult.   We highly recommend that you reach out to car accident lawyers as soon as possible following your accident.  Speak with a few car accident lawyers to see which one is the best fit for you.
