Authorities Believe Speeding Caused Accident
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
A fatal vehicle
accident occurred in Cocoa, Florida on Wednesday around 10:00 in the morning. The
accident took place when a 2007 GMC pickup truck was traveling southbound
on Grissom Parkway at a fast speed. Control of the vehicle was lost by
the driver and the truck overturned. Tragically, the driver passed away
as a result of his injuries from the accident. The passenger was taken
to receive care for minor injuries.
Traveling at fast speeds can make a vehicle harder to control and can lead
to a driver losing control of their vehicle. Additionally, speeding is
involved in one out of every three fatal vehicle accidents. Ford Motor
Company reported that fifteen percent more fuel is used by a vehicle when
it is traveling 65 mph compared to when it is traveling 55 mph. Furthermore,
they reported that more carbon dioxide goes into the atmosphere as more
fuel is used by your car. Every year, about 13,000 people pass away in
speeding-related vehicle accidents.
