Louisa County Car Accident Causes Two Fatalities. Virginia State police report a single car accident killed the driver and passenger in Louisa County, Virginia. Speed was reported to be a factor as the car rolled over several times. This brief description of the car crash does not convey much information about this tragic car accident, nor does a picture emerge. We know that both the driver and passenger were wearing seat belts. We know that the driver was only 21 years old. Apparently, he lost control of the car and ran off the road at 9:15 p.m. on a Sunday evening. We also know that he passenger was 41 years old. Beyond these facts, our imaginations must fill in the blanks. A photograph would help. As a personal injury lawyer with decades of experience, one of the first resources that I always use is the police file. When there is a fatality involved, I usually find a detailed file that is full of photos, measurements and witness statements. Under new procedures, it is now much more difficult to access state police files. The accident report from a state trooper must be obtained through the Division of Motor Vehicles. Virginia personal injury lawyers are working to change this new procedure as it imposes a real burden on car and truck accident victims. As an experienced personal injury attorney, I appreciate the effort to streamline the procedure for obtaining car and truck accident reports, but those reports need to be readily available so that a prompt and thorough investigation of the accident facts can be undertaken.
