As experienced Lake Havasu car accident attorneys, we were deeply concerned for the safety of ten people involved in a three-car collision Sunday night, March 4, 2012, according to AZI News. The crash occurred at the intersection of Retail Center Boulevard and Highway 95 when three cars carrying a total of 10 people collided. While six of those involved denied transportation to the hospital, four passengers were taken to the hospital for treatment and two had serious injuries. The cause of the collision is still under investigation. Our thoughts are with all of those involved in this crash and we hope that those injured experience a swift recovery.
How to Avoid a Multi-Car Lake Havasu Car Accident
A multi-car Lake Havasu car accident presents additional dangers to the safety of those involved because of the added impact of a third vehicle. Each year, nearly 650 collisions resulting in nearly 200 injuries occur in Lake Havasu, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT). Though it is not always possible to avoid a multi-car collision, there are some steps you can take to reduce your risk of being involved in one of these serious crashes.
- Don’t speed—Speeding makes it more difficult to avoid a collision because the faster you go, the longer it takes to slow down.
- Don’t tailgate the driver in front of you—Many multi-car crashes are caused by rear-end collisions, and most rear-end collisions are the result of following too closely. In fact, more than 5,500 collisions occur in Arizona each year due to following too closely, according to ADOT.
- Do keep your eyes on the road and your attention on what’s going on around you. By keeping your focus on the road and other drivers, you may increase your reaction time and reduce your risk of becoming involved in a crash.
