Injury Crash on Yellowstone Highway from Driver Failing to Yield
Idaho State Police reported an injury crash on Yellowstone Highway from a driver failing to yield. A vehicle traveling eastbound on 65th S attempted to turn left onto Yellowstone Highway to go northbound and collided with an oncoming pickup truck. Police reported both drivers were transported by private vehicles to a nearby medical center for evaluation of injuries. The southbound lanes of Yellowstone Highway were partially blocked for a little over an hour as crews worked to clear the car accident.
Consequences of Failing to Yield
A common cause of car accident is failing to yield. Many impatient drivers cause a collision with just a quick misjudgment. However, all drivers have a duty to obey all rules of the road in order to avoid causing a collision. See Idaho Rules of the Road regarding failure to yield here.
Failure to yield the right of way when required by law can lead to liability for any resulting car crash. The difference between these types of accidents and other car accidents is that often the injury victim drives into the car that fails to yield. For instance, when a driver makes a left turn but fails to yield to oncoming traffic, or when a driver is aggressive about merging onto the highway, or when a driver is entering the street from a private driveway.
Failing to Yield is Negligent Driving
When a person is hurt by another driver failing to yield, the at-fault or negligent driver can be sued for damages. Things such as medical bills, damage to the vehicle, pain and suffering and more can all be compensated for during a car accident case.
After an accident, take photos of all property damage to your vehicle and all other vehicles involved. It is also a good idea to keep records and take photos of injuries. You should also exchange contact and insurance information with all other drivers. In addition, gather contact information of any witnesses to the accident. Providing all this information and evidence to your car accident lawyer can greatly help the outcome of your case.
