A vehicle accident occurred in New York on Monday around 10:40 at night when a driver of a Nissan Sedan that was headed southbound on Henry Clay Boulevard traveled out of their lane of traffic and into the southbound lane. As a result, the Nissan collided with a Freightliner box truck head-on. Tragically, the driver of the Sedan passed away due to the crash. The driver of the box truck was taken to receive medical attention for his injuries, which were not severe. Authorities are investigating the accident for further information.
With about 1.3 million deaths and millions of more injuries resulting from road crashes every year, unsafe driving is an epidemic that can often be prevented. Wrong way driving often results from a lack of focus or the failure of the driver to see warning signs. Reportedly, about 61% of wrong-way road crashes are caused by driving under the influence, which is one of the top three factors found in fatal vehicle accidents.
