An accident took place in Arkansas on Thursday around 3:10 in the afternoon. The road crash occurred on Interstate 530 when a driver of a southbound vehicle veered out of their lane of traffic, drove over a grass median and into a cable barrier. The driver then hit a southbound vehicle in a head-on collision. Tragically, the passenger in the first vehicle passed away. The driver of the first vehicle, the driver of the second vehicle, and two passengers suffered injuries and were taken to receive medical care.
According to the Association for Safe International Road Travel, about 3,287 deaths occur every day as a result of road crashes. Many vehicle accidents are caused by drivers losing control of their vehicles and veering out of their lanes of traffic. However, many factors can cause drivers to lose control of their vehicles. Some of the most common causes are speeding, lack of focus on the road, and driving under the influence.
