A car accident death is a tragic event for all involved. A two-vehicle car crash resulted in the death of Frank W. Palm, 63, of Niota, Illinois.

On April 28, 2014, Palm drove his 1986 Chevrolet pickup truck westbound on Illinois Route 9/96 near County Road 1120 East. Amber R. Armitage, 33, was driving eastbound on the same road about 11:10 a.m.

Palm attempted to take a left turn in front of Armitage, and the left turn caused a head-on collision.

The collision caused major life-threatening to Armitage, who was flown by life flight to Blessing Hospital in Quincy, Illinois, and led to Palm’s death.

In cases like this, where major injuries or deaths result from the negligent use of a motor vehicle, it serves as an example of how important careful driving is to your own and other’s safety.

Here, an accident reconstruction expert will likely conclude that Palm committed improper lane usage when turning left into oncoming traffic.

Despite Palm’s death, Armitage most likely has a case against Palm’s estate for payment of medical bills, pain and suffering, loss of normal life and other damages.
