Driver Hospitalized After Accident
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
auto-accident took place on Saturday around 6:30 p.m. in Clive, Iowa. As a result of
the collision, one vehicle was turned upside-down, while the other was
broken into two pieces - with one part left tangled around a light post
and another ending up on a trail. Consequently, two people were hospitalized
- their condition is not known. The incident is being further investigated
for more information.
Driving after sundown is often a factor that contributes to auto-accidents.
Drivers make decisions based on what they see, and less light means more
vision impairment. It is estimated that the traffic volume at night is
about half of the traffic volume during the day. Despite this fact, around
60% of traffic deaths take place in the nighttime. Vision impairment contributes
to about half of these deaths. In order to avoid a nighttime auto-accident,
it is important that drivers take precaution by driving slow, remaining
focused, using headlights and rear lights, and never driving while fatigued
or intoxicated. If an auto-accident occurs due to negligence, contact
