Two people were injured in a two-vehicle crash that took place on November 15 in Carmel Valley. According to police, a white SUV headed south and tried to take a left turn when it collided with a black sedan.
The impact of the crash smashed the front of the sedan and the SUV rolled over till it finally came to rest on its hood. Fortunately, the first officer present on the accident scene confirmed that no one was badly hurt in the crash.
The female driver of the white SUV suffered a cut on her hand while she crawled out of the vehicle. Cooper, a dog that was also in the white SUV, was shaken up but felt better after getting some immediate attention from the owner. We are relieved that no one suffered any serious injuries and would wish the injured victims all the best for their recovery.
Seatbelts are definitely the most important safety tool in vehicles and need to be worn by all the motorists, irrespective of their age and driving experience. This rollover car accident is a clear example of the fact that wearing a seatbelt can save you from major injuries and death.
According to the California Office of Traffic Safety, overall, the state of California has hit record seat belt usage rates this year. Approximately 96.6% of motorists in California now use seat belts and there has been an increase of .4% from the year 2010.
However, no matter how safe you drive, you cannot control the reckless or negligent driving habits of those with whom you share the road.
