Modesto DUI Crash Seriously Injures Four — On September 18, 2018, a head-on collision occurred at approximately 4:50 a.m. in southwest Modesto. A 24-year-old Ceres woman was driving her white 1999 Saturn sedan northbound along Carpenter Road in the vicinity of Hatch Road when her vehicle veered into the oncoming traffic lane.

Homeopathic Remedies and Driving – The ability to drive a car grants a new sense of freedom. However, with this freedom comes a serious responsibility. This responsibility is central to driving regardless of people’s age, and an auto accident can happen at any time. Even minor car accidents can cause serious injuries that could also lead to lifelong complications. According to car accident statistics released by the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) in 2016:

  • More than 10,000 people were killed while not wearing their seat belt.

This all plays a role in someone’s ability to operate a motor vehicle safely and may impact the chances of an auto accident occurring. Whether it is bumper scratches or a serious multi-car accident, every car accident carries with it the opportunity of sustaining multiple injuries.
