Every day we wake up and continue our routine. We go about our day thinking of everything on our list of things to do that we don’t really pay attention much to our surroundings. Have you ever driven home from work and thought about how you actually got home? Maybe you don’t remember the drive or parts of the drive? Have you ever driven home and realized that a whole new building was constructed, but you didn’t realize it was there until it was completed? When we drive we get comfortable. Our brains learn how to process information without being alert 24/7. So when we drive the same routes we don’t really pay attention unless something really different appears in front of us or if something happens to us.
Car accidents are one of those things that can jar us back into reality for the drive, passengers, and family of those who were in the accident. Injuries from car accidents can prevent us from enjoying the reality we used to know. Common injuries from car accidents are whiplash, which is a strain on the neck or upper back, fractures of back and neck, bruises, lacerations, broken limbs, broken ribs, and facial fractures and breaks. If you are in a car accident then your injuries can range from superficial to permanent damage. Worst case scenario you can lose your life. This is the reality that a family faces after their daughter was in a tragic car accident on a Wednesday night, but died after succumbing to her injuries in hospital on Thursday.
The Short Story Of Tragedy
A crash occurred when a Kia Optima ran through a red light and ran into an F-150 Truck. Then the force of that crash made the Kia run into another F-150 truck. Three teenagers were in the car. The two other teenagers, an 18-year old and 16-year old, were hospitalized but expected to survive. The 17-year old girl died in the hospital on Thursday. To add a twist to the story, the driver of the first F-150 is being investigated for possible alcohol impairment. The driver of the second F-150 only suffered minor injuries.
This multiple car accident is a mess. Not only are people hurt in almost every vehicle, but the police have to discern what happened and who is at fault. Witnesses are helpful in putting together the story, but even onlookers may not have the whole story.
