Lena Adams Struck and Injured by Vehicle on Main Avenue
Orangeville, CA (January 13, 2022)– On New Year’s Eve, 31-year-old Lena Adams sustained injuries in a hit-and-run crash on Main Avenue.
“I went to go to enjoy a show,” said Adams, “What I got was completely different.”
Apparently, someone rammed a car into Adams as she lit fireworks near Greenback Lane.
People heard someone yelling expletives at Adams before running her over and leaving the scene.
The CHP said the car involved is a gray 2013 to 2018 Ford C Max. They, however, have not yet provided any description of the male suspect they are looking for.
Meanwhile, Adams has a message to the driver:
“If you could hit me so freely — what makes you think you won’t stop to hit someone else. Or, take someone else’s life. Maybe it’ll be harder.”
Here is the link to help with Adams’ hospitalization.
The perverse actions of a reckless driver can increase the likelihood of traffic collisions. If you are a driver, pay close attention to those around you. Always keep a considerable distance from others just in case harm is near. It is always better to practice defensive driving.
What To Do in Case of Traffic Crash?
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.
