Furthermore, authorities said that a person sustained moderate injuries while three more suffered minor injuries.
Meanwhile, officers are actively searching for the wrong-way driver around the area.
When you are behind the wheel of a vehicle, it is your responsibility to follow all traffic laws. Moreover, accidents can often be avoided if drivers remain focused behind the wheel. Additionally, driving defensively can also prevent collisions.
However, if you find yourself unable to safely operate your vehicle, you can always use a ride share app instead. By doing so, you can help to ensure the safety of yourself and others around you.
