A car accident lawyer would be needed in the Cooper Township area of Kalamazoo County, Michigan, after a tragic collision between two vehicles killed one person and injured three others. The identity of the fatal victim was revealed as Kelly Brooks. The incident took place on Tuesday, April 28.
The crash was confirmed by the Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s deputies, who reported that the two vehicles collided on West C Avenue at about 7:40 am.
It was gathered that one of the involved vehicles, a minivan, was traveling through the east traffic lanes of West C Avenue towards a driveway near North 14th Street. At the same time, another vehicle, a passenger car, was moving west on the roadway at a high rate of speed.
Just as the minivan attempted a left turn onto the driveway, it crashed into the passenger car. The collision caused the occupants of the minivan to be trapped inside until the fire rescue team arrived and rescued them.
After they were pulled out of the wreckage, one of the occupants, who was occupying the right front seat when the crash happened, was unresponsive. Medics transported Kelly Brooks to a hospital where she sadly succumbed to her injuries.
The three occupants of the passenger car were also severely injured. While two of them were transported to a hospital for treatment, the driver declined treatment.
Police believe speed was a factor in the two-vehicle crash. It was, however, not clear which of the motorists had the right of way at the time.
Victims of car accidents are advised to get in touch with an experienced car accident lawyer as soon as possible.
