Bellevue Man Killed in Crash

Picture of city boulevardA 21-year-old woman was injured and her 44-year-old father was recently killed in a Sarpy County car accident. The fatal car crash occurred on 36th Street near Cedar Island Road in Sarpy County. Officials say the woman was driving a blue Chevrolet Cobalt when it spun out of control, crossed the centerline, and was struck by a southbound driving BMW. The driver sustained critical injuries and her father died at the scene. The 64-year-old driver of the BMW was hospitalized for observation. The crash remains under investigation, but recent snowfall may have contributed to the accident.

Driving in and around Omaha in the wintertime is dangerous. Before you even get into your car, make sure your lights are working, your tires are properly inflated and have adequate tread, and that your windows are clear of snow and ice. If there is any chance that the roadway is slick or icy, slow down, and leave more room between your vehicle and the one in front of you.

If you’re involved in a serious injury accident, make sure you remain at the scene and contact the authorities. While waiting for help, it may prove useful to get contact information from everyone who witnessed the crash. Don’t forget to also take photos of the crash site, the damaged vehicles, and your injuries. After speaking with the police and receiving medical attention, you’ll need to speak with an attorney.

Winter weather-related accidents often lead to complicated liability issues for the victims and the victim’s family. It can be challenging to determine responsibility when the main contributing factor is not driver error or negligence but poor weather conditions. In such cases, an Omaha car accident attorney could prove useful in securing fair compensation for the victim or the victim’s family.
