Nebraska fatal accident victims are often passengers

When Nebraska residents hear the words "fatal accident victims," they often picture situations in which an unsuspecting driver falls victim to another driver who happened to be operating his or her vehicle in a reckless manner. A scenario that people often fail to picture is one in which a passenger is killed in a fatal accident because of the actions of the driver of the vehicle in which he or she is riding. Even though this scenario is less common, it is no less devastating to the family members who are left to grieve their loss.

However, when the collision results in the death of a passenger or driver, the event takes on a much different character.
