People who are able to walk away from a car accident in Minnesota consider themselves lucky. One college athlete from the University of San Francisco can count himself extra lucky, because not only did he survive a car accident virtually unscathed on Thursday evening, he played in a basketball tournament the next morning.
Motor vehicle accidents can cause a great deal of damage to people and property alike. A collision near Hanska, Minnesota between a van and a semi-trailer resulted in severe damage to both vehicles. Both drivers received injuries as well, though the extent is not altogether clear.
At this time of year, it is common that people in Minnesota find themselves attending multiple holiday events. These may include company parties, neighborhood gatherings, family functions and more. As alcohol is frequently served at these functions, people may be more at risk for being on the road with drunk drivers as many people refuse to find alternate transportation or opt not to consume alcohol when going out.
Minnesota residents who have been involved in a crash will usually have symptoms that appear immediately, as well as ones that take longer to manifest. While the injuries with immediate symptoms may be more acute and require more immediate medical attention, injuries that are slower to show can be equally dangerous.
