Crash Injures Four Victims
The two-vehicle crash caused one victim to suffer major injuries. The victim was transported via air ambulance to the John Muir Trauma Center in Walnut Creek. The two other victims suffered minor injuries and were transported via ground ambulance. The fourth victim involved in the collision refused transport.
The car crash caused the roadway to be shut down for a few hours for authorities to investigate. Upon investigation, police found that the cause of the crash was a result of “unsafe driving practices”. Officers have not yet released additional details regarding the collision.
Preventing Automobile Accidents
Automobile accidents tend to occur without warning. This is why a motorist should always exercise additional caution while driving. A driver should always pay attention to the road and avoid distracted driving habits at all times. Remember to check your mirrors and blind spots before switching lanes or conducting turns along the roadway. Staying conscious and aware of your surroundings may prevent you or a loved one from suffering injuries caused by a crash.
