A collision can take place at virtually any moment and dealing with the fallout of a crash can be a scary and intimidating process. While in some cases, car accidents may do little more than leave those involved shaken up or unnerved, each incident runs the unfortunate chance of leaving those involved with severe or even permanent injuries. A 40-year-old man has died and two others remain hospitalized with injuries following a recent collision that occurred in Massachusetts.

Law enforcement agents say they responded to the scene of the crash on a recent Thursday afternoon. While many of the details surrounding how it occurred remain unclear, they have advised that it involved two vehicles which had collided head-on. Police say the incident caused several individuals to suffer injuries and left both vehicles with significant damage.

Police say that all three individuals involved in the crash were each transported to a medical facility with severe injuries. They also stated that one of those individuals passed away shortly after arriving at the hospital. An investigation into the crash is ongoing, likely in hopes of determining what might have caused it to occur.

Suffer serious injuries or losing loved ones in car accidents can be a harrowing experience. When another party is at fault in the crash, the victim or the surviving loved ones of the deceased could choose to retain the services of an attorney for guidance on their available legal avenues. An attorney can examine the circumstances a client in Massachusetts is facing and assist in pursuing the compensation entitled through a claim against the party deemed responsible.
