Army Football Star Killed In Car Accident
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
auto accident occurred in the early hours of the morning on September 10th in Westchester
County. The accident was a single-car crash and was a result of the vehicle
colliding with a guardrail. Tragically, the accident was fatal, and the
20-year old who was operating the vehicle passed away. The driver, a young
Army football player, was the only passenger in the car. Police are investigating
the auto accident for further information.
Auto accidents of all sorts occur about every two minutes worldwide. The
top three causes of vehicle accidents are distracted driving, speeding,
and driving while under the influence. Driving distracted is way too common,
as there are many contributors to this epidemic. For example, some of
the most common ways drivers commit distracted driving is by eating, worrying
about their radios, or texting. While drivers do not think they are dangerous
at the time, the average driver who texts behind the wheel may look away
from the road for up to five seconds. Shockingly, that amount is time
is long enough to allow a driver to travel the length of a football field
without looking when driving a speed of 55 mph.
