Glen Levine, from the Law Firm of Anidjar and Levine, comments on this crash: “This was a serious accident that left two people with serious injuries. 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. We hope that all involved have a speedy recovery.”
