According to an article on the San Angelo Live website, three people went to the hospital due to a car accident. The crash happened at the intersection of A&M and Beauregard Ave. When police arrived at the scene, a white Toyota Camry and a Red Tesla had crashed. The Tesla had two people inside that needed to be taken to the hospital. The driver of the Camry sustained injuries, as well and was taken to the hospital for treatment.
According to an officer who was investigating the site of the car wreck, it seems the driver of the Camry disregarded a stop sign and collided with the Tesla. No details were given about the extent of the injuries everyone sustained in this collision.
Just Like That
It can happen in the blink of any eye. One minute, you are making your way to work, the grocery store, or any other place to which you have driven countless times. The next minute, you are on your way to the hospital because someone wasn't paying attention and ran a stop sign. There are many reasons why someone might run a stop sign at an intersection but none of them may excuse the person from being held responsible for their actions. We may never know why the person in the story above ran the stop sign. Perhaps the sign was not very visible or perhaps there might have been some distraction that caused the oversight.
Distracted driving is the leading cause of car accidents. One of the reasons this is possible is because of the broad definition of a distraction. It can be the kids yelling in the back seat or it can be a sandwich in your hand. From messing with the radio or GPS to texting or calling on your cell phone, the number of things that can take your attention off the road is vast. Basically, anything that takes your attention from the task of driving could be considered a form of distraction. Since we are all human, mistakes are bound to happen. No one really plans on getting into a wreck, but that doesn't mean people aren't responsible for operating their vehicles safely.
