A 17-year-old boy was arrested in May for reportedly driving over 100 mph causing an accident that injured 10 people.
The accident occurred in Queens, NY around 4:30 p.m. on a Friday when the 17-year-old lost control of his Honda, hopping a median and slamming into two oncoming vehicles.
One police source commented, “It’s amazing no one was killed.”
As this example clearly illustrates, one negligent driver can cause much harm to other drivers. While it is important that each individual driver does their part to contribute to safer driving conditions, the actions of others are often unpredictable and may leave you involved in an unavoidable accident.
