Rollover accident – Greens Road crash injures 10

Ten people were sent to hospital and one person was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated after a Saturday night car accident. Police say a green-colored Ford F-150 pickup truck ran a red light at the intersection of Greens Road and Lee Road around 10:30 p.m. An approaching car t-boned the truck causing it to flip over. Police say there were four adults and five children in the truck: the kids’ ages ranged from 2 months to 11-years old. The car driver was injured also. The driver of the truck was arrested on suspicion of DWI. Channel 2’s report is here. Channel 11’s report is here.
This accident is an illustration of why you can never carry enough automobile insurance coverage. Assuming the F-150 driver has a state liability minimum limits policy, there would be a maximum of $60,000 of coverage for bodily injury to ALL of the people hurt in this crash: the passengers in the pickup and the driver of the car.

Police suspect the driver of the F-150 was drunk
