The accident began when a 41-year-old woman driving a Chrysler Town & Country rear-ended a Chevrolet Suburban that was stopped behind another vehicle. That vehicle was a Kia Rondo driven by an 81-year-old man, stopped in the southbound lane of U.S. 61 waiting to make a left turn. The initial impact caused a chain reaction causing the van to hit the SUV, then the SUV hitting the Kia. The two occupants of the Kia and the driver of the SUV were injured. The accident happened 1 mile north of Alexandria on Thursday afternoon.
Rear-end collisions are typically caused by distracted drivers. Distracted drivers were responsible for 3,328 fatalities in 2012. Using a cell phone, eating, and operating a GPS system while driving are some of the risk factors that could lead to an accident. Allowing yourself to be distracted while driving is not worth endangering yourself or others.
