Watch, at least, the first two-minutes of this video from LOUDLABS NEWS. It shows quite vividly how many drivers aren’t looking at the road conditions ahead. It starts with a white Honda broken down in the roadway. It appears the video starts rolling after at least one vehicle hit the Honda and it builds from there.
Another crash. More very close calls. Some lucky drivers and passengers on foot who somehow missed getting hit. Only one person went to the hospital.
What I get out of this is a reminder to try to safely get as far away from the vehicle and the highway as possible in a situation like this (not always an easy thing to do).
More and more, drivers who are not paying attention are making highway incidents extremely unsafe for fire, EMS and police. But it’s even worse before they get there.
