A fatal vehicle accident occurred Thursday afternoon around 2:17 p.m. in Wisconsin when two vehicles collided on Highway 51. The accident took place when a woman driving a Volkswagen Golf drifted into the southbound lane of traffic and struck a Hyundai Elantra “partially head-on.” The driver of the Volkswagen was taken to the hospital to receive care for her injuries. Tragically, she passed away due to injuries sustained from the accident. Additionally, the man that was driving the Hyundai was taken to the hospital to receive care for his arm and leg, which were both broken.
In the United States, around six million vehicle accidents occur yearly. Of those vehicle accidents, distracted driving is among one of the main causes. The amount of brain activity related to driving decreases by 37% when a driver uses their cell phone while behind the wheel. To prevent vehicle accidents, drive according to traffic safety laws and regulations.
