Police chase leads to multi-vehicle accident in North Carolina

Car accidents can happen for a number of reasons, including trying to evade law enforcement officers. According to the Cornelius Police Department, a police pursuit ended in Huntersville, North Carolina, with a multi-vehicle accident.

After police received information regarding a wanted person staying at a local hotel, the suspect was able to get in his car and flee the area. This led to a chase that eventually came to an end on a local roadway.

While attempting to escape police, the man crossed over the center line and collided with two oncoming vehicles. A third vehicle was also involved in the accident.

As a result, six people, including the man who was being chased, were taken to Carolinas Medical Center. It was reported that three of the victims had serious injuries. Along with these people, two Cornelius police officers were treated for injuries as well.

The man the police were chasing was wanted on a parole violation. When he is able to leave the hospital, he will be charged with additional counts related to the high-speed chase and subsequent accident.

These types of car accidents can be avoided if a person just cooperates with authorities as opposed to running and hoping to get away. This man made the poor decision of fleeing police, and in the end he, along with several others, were injured.

In the event of such a car accident, the victims, those who were injured as innocent bystanders, may have the right to file a lawsuit in an attempt to receive compensation for injuries and other damages.
