Silver Creek, MI (February 14, 2022) - One person was hurt in a car wreck on Sunday, February 13 in Cass County. Authorities responded to a report of a two-vehicle accident just before 3:00 p.m.
The incident happened in the 53000 block of M-51 North in Silver Creek, information from a news release reveals. A 20-year-old Coloma resident was headed north on M-51 when he lost control of his vehicle due to a patch of ice.
His vehicle struck a southbound vehicle head-on. That vehicle was driven by a 66-year-old man from Dowagiac. The 66-year-old man was transported to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Both drivers were wearing seat belts and airbags were deployed, according to reports. Police continue to investigate the details of the incident.
Sheriff’s deputies were observed at the scene from the Pokagon Tribal Police Department, along with the Dowagiac Police Department, Wayne Township Fire Department, Dowagiac Fire Department, Sister Lakes Fire Department, and Pride Care.
We hope for the full recovery of the injured victims.
A minor car accident is, at best, a minor inconvenience. However, a serious car accident can permanently change your life. Out of the several thousand vehicle collisions that take place on Michigan roads each year, most of them result in nothing more than significant property damage.
Unfortunately, many of them also result in critical personal injuries and death. Even a car accident that at first seems like an insignificant fender-bender can cause grievous bodily harm, emotional turmoil, and economic hardship.
If you were injured in a car accident, or your life has been directly affected by the loss of a family member in a deadly crash, you could be entitled to financial compensation. Never sign any documents, agree to a settlement, or even speak with an adjuster until you have consulted an experienced Michigan personal injury attorney.
Even if you were not at fault in the accident you were involved in, the vehicle insurance companies wish to get the best outcome for their own client. Your claim for compensation could possibly be delayed if the other party is not willing to admit they were at fault. Working with a car accident lawyer in Detroit can help ensure you are able to receive the maximum compensation available for your particular case, as well as help speed up the payment process.
