Drive defensively to ensure the safety of surrounding vehicles, drivers, and pedestrians.
Injuries in While Traveling

The increasing crash rate reflects that auto accidents like the Highway 2 head-on collision are a major public health threat. They are a leading cause of death for individuals ages 5-64.
As a matter of fact, according to the NHTSA, two out of three motorists will be involved in an injury accident during their life.
That is why it is important to know what to do if you incur a motor vehicle accident much like the US-2 vehicle crash.
