On Aug. 12, two people were killed in a multi-vehicle accident on Highway 401 in Mississauga. Three other people were injured in the fiery wreck.

According to the Ontario Provincial Police, a red Chevrolet Corvette was tailgating another car in the westbound lanes of the highway around 9:30 p.m. when it clipped a transport truck as the driver attempted to change lanes. The impact caused the truck to lose control, swerve into another lane, strike a Mazda, smash into a guard rail and burst into flames. The truck's trailer, which was loaded with skids of water, jumped the guard rail and entered the highway's eastbound lanes.

The driver of the truck was not hurt in the collision. However, the driver of the Corvette, age 34, and a female passenger in the Mazda, age 77, suffered lethal injuries and later died in the hospital. Three other people also suffered injuries and were transported to the hospital for treatment. They have since been released. According to authorities, portions of the highway's concrete barriers sustained substantial damage in crash and had to be replaced by Ministry of Transportation workers.

When a reckless driver causes a car accident, injured victims have the right to pursue compensation in court. If someone is killed in the crash, his or her family also has the right to seek compensation for their losses. A lawyer experienced with these matters could assist clients going through either type of situation. To help injured victims, the lawyer could file a personal injury lawsuit seeking compensation for medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering. For families who have lost a loved one, legal counsel could file a wrongful death claim seeking compensation for the damages allowed by statute.
