A fatal vehicle accident occurred on Bender Lane around 3:30 in the morning on Saturday in Bethlehem. The driver of a Subaru WRX was headed northbound on Bender Lane when control of the vehicle was lost, causing for the vehicle to veer off of the road and strike some trees. Authorities removed the only occupant of the vehicle shortly after the accident, but sadly, the driver passed away at the hospital. The crash is being investigated, but it is known that speed contributed to the cause of the accident.
Speeding is number three in the top causes of road crashes. Additionally, it occurs in about one out of every three vehicle accidents in which there is a fatality. While there are some reasons why a driver would be traveling at a quick rate of speed, it is important that drivers stay alert and focused while operating their vehicle in order to prevent this from happening.
