Woman Killed When Food Truck T-Bones Car in Leesburg
A mother has died in a car accident in Leesburg, Virginia. The September 8, 2017 accident occurred around 4:50 PM at the intersection of Watson Road and Evergreen Mills Road. A school bus converted into a mobile diner was heading east on Watson when the driver ran a stop sign and collided with an Audi heading north on Evergreen Mills Road.
It took several hours for emergency workers to rescue the victims trapped inside the Audi. A heavy wrecker had to be brought to the scene of the collision to move the bus off of the car. A woman inside the Audi was killed in the collision. Another adult and three children from the car were eventually rescued and taken to the hospital with serious injuries. Three people on the food truck also sustained minor injuries. Charges are expected for the driver of the truck.
We send our condolences to the family of the victims and wish the survivors a complete recovery. Though the days and weeks after a car accident are extremely tender, we recommend the family speak with a Virginia car accident and wrongful death attorney to explore their legal options.
T-boning accidents like this one often occur when a driver fails to allow enough time for a car to take its right of way turn. This is not only illegal, it is negligent driving. Though the driver of the food truck has not yet been charged, it is possible they will be charged with failing to yield right of way before entering a highway.
