A vehicle accident took place in Orlando, Florida on Monday morning on State Road 408. The accident took place when a driver of a Toyota lost control of their vehicle before hitting the median of the roadway. Then, the vehicle flipped, and the driver was ejected. The driver was not wearing her seatbelt. She was taken to receive medical attention for her injuries and is in critical condition.
Loss of vehicle control can be caused by a number of reasons, ranging from driving distractedly to a medical emergency. Additionally, loss of vehicle control is often caused by speeding, as traveling at a high rate of speed makes certain actions, such as braking and turning, more difficult and dangerous. Also, lack of seatbelt restraint often is a contributing factor in accidents where drivers are injured or killed, as seat belts are the most effective way to increase your chances of safety in a road crash. With an effectiveness of about 45-60%, seatbelts have saved the lives of many.
