A fatal vehicle accident occurred on Saturday in Norwalk around 1:00 in the morning. Allegedly, the crash took place when a driver was traveling at a fast speed, which caused for their vehicle to hit a curb. Then, the driver lost control of their vehicle and struck a building. Additionally, it has been reported that the driver was not wearing their seatbelt, but the passenger was. After hitting the building, the two people in the vehicle were trapped. Tragically, the driver passed away at the scene of the accident, and the passenger was injured severely.
Speeding is a factor that is involved in one out of every three fatal vehicle accidents. Additionally, the use of seat belts is very important in protecting occupants of vehicles in the case of an accident. For instance, wearing a seatbelt can protect the occupants of a vehicle by about half in the case of a road crash.
