A one-vehicle accident occurred in Texas on Wednesday, sending a person to the hospital. The accident occurred when a southbound brown 2002 Dodge Ram 1500 truck switched into the outside lane of Earl Rudder Freeway from the inside lane. After doing so, the driver then made a sudden swerving motion to prevent colliding with traffic. The swerving motion caused for the truck to roll over multiple times and cross the median. In addition, the driver was ejected from the truck. The driver was taken to the hospital in order to receive medical care for their serious injuries.
While swerving is a driving technique that may prevent some accidents from occurring, it is also an action that is likely to cause many accidents. It is important for drivers to pay attention to the road so that they know what may happen in front of them. By doing so, the driver will not have to carry out any sudden actions, such as swerving. A defensive driving technique is to keep an area open next to your vehicle at all times in order to give yourself a space to swerve into if need be. Otherwise, swerving is inadvisable, as it may cause a driver to lose control of their vehicle.
