Fatal car accident injures 4 Secret Service agents

Nebraska residents may have heard that four Secret Service officers were injured in a car accident in New Hampshire on Dec. 29. All four of the officers were traveling in a vehicle that was struck head on by a second vehicle. The 45-year-old man who was driving the second car was pronounced dead at the scene while two passengers in his car sustained injuries.

The fatal car crash took place while the on-duty Secret Service agents were traveling southbound on Route 16 in a Ford Taurus. When a Mercury Sable crossed over the double-yellow lines, the agents' car was struck head-on. The injured Secret Service agents were all taken to Frisbee Memorial hospital for treatment. Their injuries were reported to be serious but not life threatening.

Although it is known that the Secret Service agents were on duty, there have been no reports about who they were working for at the time of the accident. Former Secretary of State and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was campaigning in New Hampshire when the accident occurred. After the crash, Clinton released a statement expressing her condolences to the victims and their family members.

People who have been injured in similar car accidents may wonder who is responsible for compensating victims for their damages. When the at-fault driver dies in a crash, the deceased driver's estate may be liable for the victims' economic and non-economic losses. An attorney may be able to help an accident victim to pursue financial damages through a personal injury lawsuit if the amount offered by the drivers' insurance company is insufficient. Amounts that are sought often include medical expenses and, where applicable, lost wages.
