A head-on collision has led to the death of a man and causing severe injuries to a passenger who was also in the car.
In a report by the officials, a drunk driver drove facing another oncoming vehicle along Ortiz Avenue. The driver did try to avert a head-on collision but it was too late due to the speed. The impact was so serious with the driver of the car being ejected.
According to officials, the driver who caused the crash was also injured and had to be taken to the hospital. However, the driver of the other vehicle was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash while his passenger sustained serious injuries. She was taken to the nearest Trauma Medical Center for prompt medical attention.
An investigation has ensued to ascertain the major causes of the crash. Details of the parties involved in the head-on collision are yet to be released by the authorities.
Glen Levine, from the Law Firm of Anidjar and Levine, comments on this crash: “This was a serious accident that left one person dead and two others injured. Head-on accidents are one of the most dangerous kinds of accidents. This type of accident usually happens because of driver error, meaning they are 100% preventable. Sadly, the innocent victims of these crashes are rendered powerless: often, there’s nothing you can do when an oncoming vehicle is bearing down on you, except brace for impact. Our deepest condolences go out to the family that lost a member in this terrible accident.”
