A serious car accident may occur at any time. While certain precautions can be taken to avoid an accident, we cannot always account for the actions of others. Unfortunately, negligence is all around us. Some drivers simply choose not to follow the rules of the road, in disregard of the safety of others. If this happens, there is sometimes little that can be done to avoid becoming the victim of a serious car accident.
Police will continue to look at this crash in an effort to determine who is at fault. If the truck driver is deemed at fault, then Brittainy Maiki will have the right to sue for personal injuries on behalf of both herself and her daughter.
