Four-car accident in Harris County sends several to hospital

A recent chain-reaction collision on Interstate 45 in North Harris County wrecked four vehicles and sent several people to the hospital. Multi-vehicle accidents on an interstate highway can be serious and often result in serious injury or death. In this case, although several people had to go to the hospital, authorities say their injuries were minor.

According to authorities, the car accident took place at around 1:20 in the morning. The chain of events began with a separate accident on the interstate, in the vicinity of North Mount Houston Road. That accident caused traffic to slow down, and as it did so one vehicle failed to slow down in time and crashed into the rear of another. Two more cars then collided with the wrecked vehicles.

The damage to the vehicles was severe enough that emergency responders had to use the Jaws of Life to get victims out of their cars. At the time of a news report of the crash, authorities had not yet determined whether alcohol was involved.

Although authorities have stated the victims suffered only minor injuries, in many cases so-called minor injuries can have long-term effects. This is particularly true when the injuries are to the soft tissues of the neck and back. Those types of injuries sometimes worsen in the weeks and months after an accident, and in many cases the victim is left with lifelong pain and suffering. For this reason it is important for an auto accident victim with any level of injury to seek medical attention soon after the accident and continue following up until the medical professionals can give a clear prognosis of recovery.
