Officer Trapped in Wilmington Crash

Wilmington, CA (October 23, 2021)– On Friday, a Los Angeles Police Department officer suffered injuries in Pacific Coast Highway hit-and-run crash.

The injured officer reported the crash at 5:49 p.m. at the intersection with Alameda Street.

Investigators said the officer was trapped inside their vehicle after they were rammed by another car.

Luckily, the Los Angeles Fire Department was able to free the injured officer. Then, they rushed them to a local hospital with non-fatal injuries.

Meanwhile, the driver who struck the officer’s vehicle fled the scene on foot. The authorities took the driver in custody a short time later.

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.


How Can We Prevent Road Accidents?

Vehicular accidents are not only troublesome for your vehicle. It can leave you or your passengers severely injured, disfigured, and permanently disabled.

Sad but true that in 2017, 485,866 accidents were reported solely in the state of California.

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.
