A two-vehicle auto-accident took place on Saturday around 6:30 p.m. in Clive, Iowa. As a result of the collision, one vehicle was turned upside-down, while the other was broken into two pieces - with one part left tangled around a light post and another ending up on a trail. Consequently, two people were hospitalized - their condition is not known. The incident is being further investigated for more information.
Driving after sundown is often a factor that contributes to auto-accidents. Drivers make decisions based on what they see, and less light means more vision impairment. It is estimated that the traffic volume at night is about half of the traffic volume during the day. Despite this fact, around 60% of traffic deaths take place in the nighttime. Vision impairment contributes to about half of these deaths. In order to avoid a nighttime auto-accident, it is important that drivers take precaution by driving slow, remaining focused, using headlights and rear lights, and never driving while fatigued or intoxicated.
