Truck Accident Claims Three Lives
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
A fatal vehicle
accident involving two cars occurred on Interstate 185 Northbound on Tuesday at
around 12:41 p.m. Allegedly, the accident occurred when a vehicle that
was traveling at a high rate of speed struck a blue pickup truck. Tragically,
as a result of the accident, three people were taken to receive medical
care, and two of those people passed away. Authorities are gathering information
while the accident is still being investigated.
Speeding is among the top three causes of traffic accidents, along with
distracted driving and driving while under the influence. Additionally,
it is a factor involved in one out of three fatal vehicle accidents. When
traveling at a high rate of speed, it takes a vehicle a longer distance
to reach a complete stop. Every year, speeding causes around 13,000 deaths
and many injuries. By neglecting traffic safety laws and regulations and
driving at a high rate of speed, drivers put both themselves and other
people on the road at risk.
