Recently, we reported on how the number of deadly crashes has been increasing recently, forcing safety advocates and government officials to come together to make sure that actions are being taken so that fewer people are killed in traffic collisions.
So it pains us to know that a tragic crash that has taken place in California led to the death of a young driver.
According to several news reports, the crash happened in Mission Valley early Wednesday. The 23-year-old driver who lost his life lost control of his pickup truck while traveling on Interstate 8. The driver then allowed the vehicle to plow into a certain median.
The reports coming from the media indicate that the California Highway Patrol troopers who responded to the scene of the crash say that the driver crashed then overturned his vehicle around 1:30 am. The accident took place just west of Interstate 15. No other vehicle occupants were impacted by the crash.
According to the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s office, the driver only died 40 minutes after the collision, at the hospital. At the time of the crash, the 23-year-old was wearing his seat belt but he was also traveling at high speeds, CHP reports show.
If officials are correct in their estimate, the driver may have failed to negotiate the curve because of how fast the vehicle was traveling.
To our friends and clients, we urg patience and attention to road rules.
We all know how the traffic can be unforgiving. But we also must know that certain rules must always be followed so that crashes can be avoided. Do not speed, avoid distraction, and never get behind the wheel while intoxicated.
We hope that the victim’s family is able to recover from this tragic accident. We also urge drivers across California to focus on safety and avoid accidents by following the road rules. Pay attention to the speed limits and do not jeopardize your safety or the safety of others in the name of distraction.
