A tragic accident occurred recently in Stamford on Interstate 100. The accident occurred when a man who was driving in the center lane of Interstate 100 headed southbound swerved in the direction of the divider in the middle of the highway after losing control of his Honda Pilot. Then, the vehicle swerved toward the right shoulder of the highway and collided with several trees. The vehicle then burst into flames. Tragically, the driver passed away at the scene of the accident.
While vehicle accidents are common worldwide, they are often preventable. Negligence commonly is a factor involved in vehicle accidents. According to the Association for Safe International Road Travel, about 1.3 million people pass away due to road crashes yearly. In addition, about 20 to 50 million people are injured or disabled because of road crashes every year. To make the roads safe, drive according to traffic safety laws and regulations.
