California High Speed Collisions
Speeding is a major cause of collisions on the streets and highways of California. Especially on major roadways with higher speed limits, motorists tend to drive faster than they should under the conditions. When a person is speeding they lose the ability to react to sudden changes in traffic conditions. The risk is compounded when the speeding driver is also distracted by texting or talking on the phone. When these elements are combined, speeding can be especially deadly.
We will have to wait for the outcome of the investigation to determine legal responsibility for the crash. Along with speed, police will also consider other factors in arriving at their conclusions regarding fault. Regardless, we certainly wish a full and speedy recovery for anyone injured in this crash.
