Mata immediately fled the scene but was later located on Bradley Road.

Both Hernandez and Mata incurred minor scrapes in the accident.
 
Never drink and drive.


Prevention Is Always Better Than Cure

 
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.
 
Most importantly, stay focused on the road. Remove all distractions such as mobile phone use, unstrapped toddlers, etc.
