Summer is fading away and the cool winds of fall are blowing into Roanoke. Soon rain and cold weather will cause slippery conditions to occur on local roads and highways. While many Virginia drivers know how to safely travel on hazardous roads, others fail to take sufficient precautions and cause dangerous car accidents.
Some car accidents are minor and simply slow down the mornings of those involved. Others are more serious and result in individuals suffering property damages and injuries. A handful of accidents fall into a third category and involve serious injuries and fatalities.
When a person is killed in a fatal accident he often leaves behind loved ones who expect the financial and emotional support that victim used to provide.
