Car accidents can result in the individuals in the vehicles involved suffering serious injuries. Such injuries can have significant impacts on their victims’ lives. Thus, car accidents can be very harmful. Recently, an injury-causing car accident occurred in Oregon. The accident occurred near Harrisburg, Oregon last Thursday. Early that morning, a 58-year-old man was driving an SUV along Interstate 5. The SUV was towing another vehicle. Allegedly, a car that was being driven by a 23-year-old man then struck the back of the vehicle the SUV was towing. The 23-year-old man’s car, the 58-year-old man’s SUV and the vehicle the SUV was towing all overturned after this collision. Authorities allege that the 23-year-old man was speeding at the time of this accident. It has also been alleged that he was intoxicated. He reportedly faces multiple charges in connection to the accident, including charges of reckless driving and DUII. Both the 23-year-old man and the 58-year-old man sustained serious injuries in this motor vehicle accident. They were transported to hospitals after the crash. As this accident shows, auto crashes can result in individuals getting seriously injured. Thus, it is very important for motor vehicle drivers to do everything they reasonably can to prevent car accidents. This includes obeying all applicable traffic laws when behind the wheel. It also includes avoiding engaging in reckless conduct when out on the roads. If motor vehicle drivers fail to do these things, they could be putting themselves and individuals they share the roads with in harm’s way.
