Driver Suffers Broken Bones in Ninth Street Crash
Chico, CA (July 08, 2021) – On Thursday, a driver was injured in a two-vehicle crash on Ninth Street.
The accident took place at approximately 2:07 p.m. at the Chestnut Street intersection.
Officers said the driver of the white vehicle was eastbound on Ninth Street, when at the same time, the driver of the blue vehicle was Southbound on Chestnut Street.
The white vehicle’s driver was ejected through the car door which opened due to the impact.

Since you cannot read the intention of the driver in front of you, don’t tailgate.
Always maintain some distance between your vehicle and the one ahead in order to give yourself enough response time should the vehicle ahead make a sudden turn or stop.
Be a Defensive Driver
While driving is essential for many in order to move about in their lives, it is one of the most dangerous activities performed daily. That is because auto accidents are a major public health threat. Traffic accidents are a leading cause of death for individuals ages 5-64.
That is why it is indeed crucial that everyone drives defensively in order to avoid traffic accidents as much as possible.
Meanwhile, here are some of the things that we can do to practice defensive driving:
-First, always drive at a controllable speed.
-Then, it is also important not to assume you know the other driver’s intention.
– Also, be prepared to positively react to other drivers.
This one, we should never neglect. Yield at intersections, even if you have right of way.
Lastly, stay focused on the road. Remove all the things that could distract you from driving responsibly.
