Friday evening, a Elk River woman was sent to the hospital after the Jeep she was was hit by a Semi truck along Highway 10 in Becker. Both vehicles were traveling westbound near Hancock St which is very close to downtown Becker.
I travel this area often, I suspect that speed played a role in this collision. It seems like too many people disregard the reality that they are traveling through a town. Two teens in the Jeep were also hurt, hopefully everyone will heal quickly.
If you are in an accident, make sure to get the names of anyone who indicates they saw what happened. If you witness an accident, check to see if everyone is OK and stay around or at least give the drivers your contact information. If you are injured, get care immediately and later seek the advice of an attorney who does that kind of work and who can explain your coverages and rights.
