'Minor' Mistakes on the Road Can Equal Major Consequences
Eisenberg, Gilchrist & Cutt’s Utah car accident attorneys come across a lot of catastrophic cases resulting from what many drivers consider ‘minor’ mistakes. KSL recently reported on one such tragic incident in Payson, Utah. On April 20th, an individual ran a stop sign, causing a three-car accident resulting in the individual’s death and injuries to at least two others.
Unfortunately, this is an all too common occurrence in our state. People on a daily basis make what might seem like to them minor or innocent mistakes while driving. Regrettably, those “mistakes” frequently result in catastrophe. Because driving is such a common experience for many adults, we tend to forget that we are operating vehicles weighing thousands of pounds at extremely high rates of speed.
While we cannot vouch for the validity of the findings, this segment from Mythbusters on head-on collisions at 50 mph reports some interesting and surprising results:
