Teen dies in fatal truck crash in northwest Iowa

Drivers in Iowa understand that accidents could happen suddenly and could end tragically. Young or old, unsuspecting drivers and passengers could become a victim. When an individual is involved in a serious automobile collision, it usually occurs when a driver fails to uphold the standard duty of care while that driver is behind the wheel. Distracted or negligent drivers could seriously injury or even kill others on the roadways.

No matter what time of day a driver is traveling, they should always be aware of their surroundings. That does not only mean being aware of the conditions of the roadways and other vehicles on the road but also those traveling on or near the roadways not in motorized vehicles. An oncoming vehicle could easily strike cyclists and pedestrians. When a driver is not properly paying attention, they are not upholding the necessary standard of care. A negligent driver could be liable for the injuries and damages they cause in a car accident.

The roadways are often the stage for tragedy. A negligent or distracted driver could easily collide with another vehicle, bicyclist or pedestrians. Whether a driver is traveling on an interstate, city streets, residential areas or a parking lot, they should always uphold a certain standard of care while they are behind the wheel of a moving vehicle. Failure to do so could result in a serious or fatal accident.
