Monroe Vehicle Collision Injures People

Monroe, WA (August 02, 2021) – On Sunday, several people, including a 14-year-old, suffered injuries in a three-vehicle crash on Sofie Road.

Officers said there were six people in the 2008 Honda Odyssey minivan. There was also a 14-year-old from Shoreline who was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.

Officers are still investigating the crash.

Since you cannot read the intention of the driver in front of you, don’t tailgate. Make it your practice to drive defensively.

Always maintain some distance between your vehicle and the one ahead in order to give yourself enough response time should the vehicle ahead make a sudden turn or stop.

Preventing Crash on Sofie Road

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.
