Sacramento Multi-Vehicle Crash Involves Ambulance
Sacramento, CA (June 04, 2021) – On Wednesday, no major injuries were reported in Highway 50 multi-vehicle crash.
The accident happened at about 4 a.m. near Bradshaw Road.
The authorities said a drowsy driver in the eastbound lanes spun out and struck a speed sign.
Just then, someone driving by in an ambulance stopped to help.
However, another car slammed into the first car and pushed it into the ambulance.
The authorities said there was a lot of damage to cars and glass strewn across the road.
Seems like an obvious one, however you’d be surprised how many of us fail to keep our mobile phones at bay whilst driving. Drivers using a mobile phone are four times more likely to crash their vehicle.
Mobile devices are one of the biggest distractions to drivers because they demand full attention: manual, visual, and cognitive, causing you to take your hands off the steering wheel, your eyes off the road, and your mind off the road.
If you happen to be a passenger in a moving vehicle operated by a distracted driver, you need to intervene as they are putting the passengers at risk.
Always Drive Safely
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.
Thus, it is indeed important that we drive defensively in order to avoid accidents as much as possible.
Here are some of the things that we can do to practice defensive driving:
– Always drive at a controllable speed.
– Never 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. Keep all the distractions away from you.
