Arkansas Car Accident Lawyers Discuss Car Crash Disputes
There’s an old adage that there are two sides to every story. This couldn’t apply more to when a motor vehicle collision occurs. Both drivers have experiences that differ from one another, which can lead to conflict when determining fault after an accident.
The Arkansas car accident lawyers at Rainwater, Holt & Sexton explain that such a dispute arose after a sport utility vehicle collided with a squad car driven by an officer with the Little Rock Police Department. Reports indicate the driver of the SUV was the only driver cited for the accident, despite witnesses stating the officer was speeding and responding to a call without his sirens or emergency flashers activated.
According to Arkansas Online, the crash occurred at around 9:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 18, on Kanis Road. Dash cam video from the squad car shows the officer responding to the scene of a robbery when his vehicle suddenly collides with the SUV.
The driver of the SUV was cited for careless driving, which he claims is unfair, considering the officer was traveling in excess of the speed limit. The victim says the officer’s speed had a direct impact in causing the crash, and he has stated he plans to file a complaint related to the crash as well.
