Did you know that the roads are slickest just as the rain is starting to fall? This is because all the oils in the street — which weigh less than water — suddenly rise to the top of the asphalt and make the roads extra slippery.
Our San Diego law firm’s car accident lawyers just learned from the San Diego Union Tribune that Route 76 was shut down for close to ninety minutes after a head-on crash on Tuesday.
Route 76 closed down after early morning head-on crash.
Compared to the day before, when rainstorms and heavy downpour soaked the majority of Southern California, it was a fairly dry on the roads this morning. Police are still investigating what the cause of the head-on car accident might be and have not come to any final conclusions.
As many as three cars were involved in the crash, but despite the property damage, only a few minor personal injuries were reported from the scene of the accident. Route 76 , near Pala Casino, was, however, shut down for close to an hour and a half until the California Highway Patrol (CHP) re-opened it around 7:35 a.m.
Our car accident lawyers know that even though the rain has stopped, auto accidents will occur. Roads can still be slick and visibility low even after a storm has passed. Come rain or come shine, always come with safety as your first priority.
