Car Crash Reported at Avenue 384 and Road 8
CHP reported a two-vehicle collision in Kingsburg on Tuesday morning just before 7 a.m.
The accident took place at the intersection of Avenue 384 and Road 8.
A Chevrolet pickup truck ran a stop sign, causing a head-on collision with a Chevrolet Avalanche.
One person sustained a possible broken arm and was rushed to the hospital for treatment.
An active investigation remains underway.
Statistics have shown that approximately 70% of motor-vehicle accidents are a result of stop sign violations. These accidents often happen at an angle rather than head on and about one-third result in some sort of injury.
Although stop signs are in place to prevent accidents, unfortunately not everyone adheres. This is why it is essential to always pay attention and avoid any distractions on the road.
The Fatal Analysis Reporting System (FARS) has found that:
- 75% of head-on crashes happen in rural areas
- They are most common on two-lane highways
- Failure in negotiating a curve on the road causes 23% of all fatal head-on collisions
- 58% of head-on collisions result in a fatality
It is also important to remember that in the state of California a person involved in a car accident who has sustained injuries has to file a claim within two years of the accident.
