Failure to Yield Car Crash on I-84
Idaho State Police reported a driver causing a car crash on I-84 in Caldwell due to failure to yield. Reports say she was driving westbound on I-84 when traffic began to slow due to a previous car crash ahead. The driver failed to yield to oncoming traffic while changing lanes from the right lane to the left lane colliding with the rear-end of another passenger vehicle. All occupants involved in the crash were wearing seatbelts at the time of the incident. No one was reportedly transferred for injuries, but property damage was done to both vehicles.
Failure to Yield Consequences
Sometimes when you see your lane suddenly slowing but the lane next to you appears clear, it is tempting to quickly make a lane change. 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
Failing to yield the right of way is a common cause of many car accidents. 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.
