Authorities are still investigating a car collision which resulted in injuries of two Summersville residents, Friday night.
Initial reports say that a vehicle heading east on Tower Drive suddenly veered off the road and slammed into a tree. Two passengers sustained injuries from the crash. They were identified as 19-year-old Allysia C. Mahan and 37-year-old Jesse R. Blanks. Mahan was transported to Texas County Memorial Hospital in Houston while Blanks were transferred to Mercy Hospital in Mountain View.
Investigators were called onto the scene to determine the cause of the collision. Based on the preliminary investigation, both passengers were not wearing a seat belt during the time of the accident.
Common Causes of Car Accidents
Single-vehicle collisions are a type of accidents with only one vehicle is involved. Some of the most common factors leading to this include driver’s fatigue, overspeeding, or intoxication. In other cases, environmental factors such as weather, poor drainage, narrow lanes, and sharp curves contribute to a solo-car accident.
If you are the only one involved in the accident, the first thing you need to do is assess yourself. Check for possible bleeding and examine the extent of your injuries. If you are badly hurt, do not try to move and wait for help (or call 911). If you can, stay at the sidewalk and keep your hazard lights on to signal oncoming vehicles.
