Glyndon, MN (June 29, 2023) – The Clay County Sheriff’s office responded to the scene of an automobile accident that took place in Clay County and claimed the life of an 18-year-old woman.
The accident occurred just before 4:00 p.m. on June 28.
According to reports from the Sheriff’s office, a semi-truck and a sedan collided at the intersection of 70th Street and 90th Avenue North. The incident prompted the police to shut down the roadway as they worked to clear the scene.
Deputies immediately attempted to render lifesaving efforts to the driver of the sedan, identified as an 18-year-old female. The Sanford Ambulance and Airmed also responded to the scene to provide assistance. However, the woman ended up passing away as a result of her injury.
At this time, the Sheriff’s office in Clay County and the Minnesota State Patrol are investigating.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the woman who died in this crash. Our thoughts are with all those who have been affected by this tragedy.
Collisions involving 18-wheelers can lead to severe injuries and fatalities, primarily due to their substantial size in comparison to other vehicles on the road. The immense size of these trucks results in a greater impact force during accidents. Regrettably, thousands of people end up losing their lives as a result of truck accidents every year.
When it comes to taking legal action after losing a loved one in a fatal truck accident, these wrongful death claims are generally far more complex than those involving other types of motor vehicles. This is due to the fact that truck accidents tend to involve significantly larger insurance policies. They are also more likely to involve multiple lawyers defending the truck company, the truck driver, and various other parties.
To provide yourself with the best chance of protecting your legal rights after losing a loved one in a fatal truck accident, it is in your best interest to hire a truck accident lawyer who will fight for your legal rights. Claims against trucking companies and manufacturers can be incredibly difficult to handle on your own. This makes it essential that you take the initiative to reach out to a skilled lawyer right away. Your lawyer will want to begin working on your case against the defendant as soon as possible. Acting quickly will help to ensure that you have the strongest evidence possible to prove your case against the defendant. A successful wrongful death claim can help your family get the money you need for funeral costs, lost earning capacity, loss of support, and more.
