Let’s say you are driving along the interstate. Out of nowhere another car clips the backend of your vehicle. You spin out of control and come to stop on the shoulder of the highway. You’re shaken up, but you’ve survived the serious accident. Are you out of danger? Absolutely not.
You’re still on a busy intersection, and cars will still be whizzing by you at high speeds. If you get out of your car to survey the damage or check on the other driver, you could easily be hit by another vehicle. If that happens, you’ll definitely be injured or lose your life altogether. One accident can easily lead to another, which is why it’s so important to be careful after you’re involved in a wreck. Just last week in Floyd County, we tragically saw what can happen when you’re not.
According to police, a young man was driving down Interstate 64 when his car left the highway and wrecked on the side of the road. The young driver survived that crash, but what he did next still has police baffled. He left his car and walked away from the wreckage – directly onto the busy lanes of I-64. He was soon struck by an approaching vehicle and lost his life.
You might be scared after an accident and want or need to leave your vehicle. But, never walk out on the road. Always find a safe place where you can wait for emergency crews to respond. You’ve already braved one accident, you shouldn’t have to brave another one.
