Weather Conditions Not a Factor in Fatal Rear-End Car Crash
A preliminary investigation into a deadly two-vehicle car crash indicates that inclement weather was not a factor in the accident. According to the Magnolia Reporter, responding authorities noted dry road conditions prior to the crash that occurred when one motorist failed to stop and rear-ended another vehicle.
The incident claimed the life of a 71-year-old man, and his female passenger was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment for injuries sustained in the crash. The exact nature and the extent of her injuries is not yet known. The driver of the vehicle that failed to stop before striking the other was able to walk away from the accident scene unscathed. Whether he will face criminal charges or civil penalties relating to his role in the accident also remains to be seen.
