Posted on Thursday, December 20th, 2018 at 3:56 pm
The police are still investigating a car accident that caused the death of two people and injured at least five people.
According to reports, a pick-up truck was going west on Highway 99 when, for yet unknown reasons, it suddenly crossed the center median. The vehicle then crashed into four eastbound vehicles and went airborne, leaving twisted metal and shattered glasses on the road.
The driver behind the suspect vehicle was identified as 54-year-old Charles Glaze. The two victims who died were later identified as Michael Brown and Linda Fuggiti. They are driving a silver Chevy crossover and Lexus respectively.
Glaze has not been charged in the crash. Deputies said that the suspect was not intoxicated when the collision took place. The investigation is ongoing.
Car Accidents in the United States
According to statistics, more than 3,000 people are killed in car accidents each year. In the year 2016 alone, a total of 14,217 crashes were recorded with 17,602 people sustaining serious injuries. Most of the collisions occur due to negligence or because a driver is not completely paying attention behind the wheel. They could be distracted by their phones or their focus was somewhere else.
In an unfortunate event that you were involved in a car accident, it is important for you to stay calm. You need to ensure that you act responsibly and in accordance with the law. If you are injured, do not try to move, instead, call or wait for help.
Once the investigation has been completed, you can file a lawsuit to make sure that you are properly compensated for damages—be it for your property, physical injury, and even pain and suffering.
