Woman killed in head-on collision

The Montana Highway Patrol confirmed that a 23-year-old woman was killed in a two-car crash on Aug. 20. The accident took place northwest of Whitefish along U.S. 93 near Farm to Market Road. Troopers are still investigating the fatal accident, and there have been no reports about any criminal charges being filed.

According to an MHP trooper, the accident happened when a black Mazda 6 with Canadian plates lost control of the car. The male driver of the Mazda started to drift onto the right shoulder before over-correcting. As a result, the man's car fishtailed and crashed head-on with a Honda Accord. The impact of the collision then caused the Honda to roll into a ditch and land on its hood.

Although the driver of the Honda was wearing a seat belt, the front end of her vehicle sustained significant damage, and she was pinned inside. Officials pronounced her dead at the scene of the accident. An ambulance transported the driver of the Mazda to a hospital while an ALERT helicopter took a passenger in the Mazda to a medical center.

Following a person's sudden death in a car accident, family members of the deceased might be unsure of how to proceed with a civil lawsuit against the at-fault driver. A family may then decide to contact an attorney to discuss their case. An attorney might be able to assist family members with the process of filing a claim against the driver's insurance provider and help them to seek the maximum compensation that they may be entitled to receive.
