A driver is lucky to be alive after a steel beam impaled his vehicle in an auto accident. As a man was driving his SUV along Interstate 280 in San Jose, California, a steel beam slid off of the back of a truck. The beam pierced the front windshield and traveled into the vehicle on the passenger side. Fortunately, the driver was operating his vehicle attentively and was able to pull over and exit his vehicle. He was uninjured in the accident.
Drivers should always operate their vehicles with the utmost concentration and focus. Too frequently, drivers are distracted, fatigued, or lack the necessary focus to operate a vehicle responsibly. Cell phones, GPS devices, and passengers can cause drivers to become distracted leading to accidents that result in injuries and death. Also, drivers may be able to avoid an auto accident when they are fully focused on the roadways and their surroundings. The majority of all auto accidents are preventable and many injuries and fatalities could be avoided with responsible driving. Those who allow themselves to become preoccupied, distracted, or fatigued while driving may face criminal consequences and can be held financially responsible by consulting an experienced auto accident attorney.
