On Wednesday night an auto accident in Columbia, Illinois injured two teenagers. Katherine A. Brinkley, a 26-year-old Waterloo woman, was traveling on Admiral Parkway heading north in her Lexus SUV when she struck a Pontiac G6, which was heading eastbound on Veterans. Brett Luther of Columbia was operating the G6 and was transported to the hospital along with his 17-year-old female passenger. Emergency crews had to extricate the teens from the vehicle, and the female was transported via medical helicopter. Columbia Police did not issue any citations as of Thursday evening and stated that Brinkley did not sustain any injuries in the crash. The Metro East Crash Assistance Team and Columbia Police are continuing to investigate the accident to determine the cause.

Preventable auto accidents occur thousands of times each year resulting in serious injuries and fatalities. Individuals that sustain an injury in an accident can suffer throughout their lifetime and may incur medical bills, lost wages, and mental anguish that can create a financial burden. When the accident is caused due to the recklessness and negligence of another driver, it is important to seek the counsel of an experienced auto attorney. Negligent driving can be demonstrated in the form of driving under the influence, distracted driving, speeding and aggressive driving. Receiving a full investigation into the accident is important to prove the cause and identity of the driver responsible.  It is imperative to contact a skilled auto accident attorney to recover the maximum compensation for your physical, financial, and emotional damages.
