Ridgecrest Hit-and-Run Crash Injures One, Devin McLaughlin Arrested

 
Ridgecrest, CA (May 20, 2021)– On Thursday, one was injured and police arrested 22-year-oldDevin McLaughlin in a hit-and-run crash on California Avenue.
 
The accident happened at around 8 p.m. at the Sunland Street intersection.
 
Apparently, officers received a crash report wherein McLaughlin was involved.
 
The caller provided a detailed description of McLaughlin and the injuries he suffered in the accident.
 
A little later, McLaughlin reported to the police that his car was stolen and have possibly been involved in a collision. Officers met McLaughlin at a mobile home.
 
Surprisingly, McLaughlin matched the description of the hit-and-run suspect.
 
As a result, the authorities arrested him.
 
However, inside the patrol car, McLaughlin began acting erratically and head-butted the divider cage. To prevent further harm, the police removed him from the car.
 
That is when McLaughlin kicked an officer in the face.
 
Later on, the officers took McLaughlin to Ridgecrest Regional Hospital where he was cleared for his injuries.
 
They booked him at the Central Receiving Facility (CRF) in Bakersfield for these charges: DUI Causing Great Bodily Injury, Hit and Run Causing Injury, Resist Officer w/ Violence, and Resist/Obstruct Officer in Performance of Duties.
 
You need to be fully focused while driving, but all that focus need not be on the car before you.
 
In order to take in, process, and respond to everything happening on the road, you have to constantly scan the road about half to a full mile ahead. This way, you can tell if you’ll need to let go of the gas pedal and prepare for a stop.


Stop Crash Injuries

 
While driving is essential for many in order to move about in their lives, it is one of the most dangerous activities performed daily. This is because accidents are a major public health threat. Traffic accidents are a leading cause of death for individuals ages 5-64.
 
Here are some ways that we can practice defensive driving:
 
– Always drive at the speed limit.
 
– Never assume that you know another driver’s intention.
 
– Be prepared to positively react to other drivers.
 
– Yield at intersections, especially if another vehicle is recklessly trying to take your turn.
 
– Most importantly, stay focused on the road. Remove all distractions such as cell phones or other devices.
