Fatal Auto Accident Caused by Weather Conditions

Recently, a vehicle accident took place involving snowy weather conditions. The accident occurred when a woman was driving in Guilderland on Route 155 when control of her vehicle was lost. As a result, the car collided with an oncoming SUV. Tragically, the woman passed away. These snowy weather conditions were the cause of multiple road crashes. For example, another accident occurred on Route 155 that included a collision between a school bus and another vehicle. Fortunately, no injuries were reported from the children on the bus. In addition, a collision occurred between a Center for Disability Services shuttle bus and a vehicle that morning, too. The driver of the car suffered minor injuries and was taken to the hospital for medical care.

According to “Safe Winter Roads” over 1,300 people in the United States pass away every year as a result of road crashes caused by icy or snowy road conditions. In addition, over 116,000 people are injured. According to the Federal Highway Administration, more than 70% of the roads in the United States are in areas where it snows more than five inches every year. It is important that drivers remain safe and avoid driving on icy and snowy roads or drive very slowly and take safety measures, such as driving in four wheel drive. To prevent getting into an accident, drive according to traffic safety laws and regulations.
