Two Teens Die in Car Crash in Hants County

by | Thursday, September 12, 2013

Two teens died in Ardoise in a motor vehicle collision on Sept. 2 at approximately 1:35 a.m. The fatal car accident occurred when the vehicle that the two were driving in left the roadway, hit a power pole and rolled over into a ditch.

A 19-year-old male was driving the vehicle involved in the accident. Additionally, two 16-year-old girls and a 19-year-old passenger were also in the vehicle. The 19-year-old driver and one of the 16-year-old girls died at the scene of the accident. The other two passengers were taken to nearby hospitals for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. Neighbours reported that several fire trucks, RCMP and other emergency service providers responded to the accident.

RCMP officials report that there was an increase in preventable traffic fatalities in Nova Scotia in 2013. One sergeant says that distracted driving, speeding, aggressive driving, impaired driving and the lack of wearing seat belts are some of the causes of the increased number of fatalities. Another fatal single-vehicle accident occurred on Highway 236 earlier in the year involving a 17-year-old Mailtand resident. RCMP suspect that the teen lost control of his automobile, causing it to leave the roadway, hit a culvert and land on the front yard of a home. Police are currently conducting an investigation into both Nova Scotia collisions.

Halifax personal injury lawyers may be able to assist victims who were injured in an accident that was caused by a negligent party. They may help individuals who are injured in car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents or pedestrian accidents. They could conduct an investigation into the cause of the accident in order to prove negligence, such as by showing that the other driver was speeding or distracted.

I can't speak highly enough about the lawyers at Wagners who represented me for injuries from not one but two motor vehicle accidents. They were very professional and approachable. I was kept informed of all steps in the process and all of my inquiries were responded to and dealt with very quickly. The lawyers are knowledgeable and showed great empathy for what I was going through. I would recommend this firm to anyone!
