Many people think car accidents occur with multiple vehicles. But more than often that is not the case. Our car accident lawyers know that single-car crashes happen everyday and that according to car accident statistics, every 12 minutes a person will die in a car accident in the U.S. alone.
Unfortunately that was the case in recent local news when a 51-year-old City Heights man was found dead near Ramona after he crashed his car into a boulder.
The single-car accident happened on Mussey Grade Road near Kimball Valley Road in the Fernbrook area. A Ramona woman who lives along the road where the car accident occured, discovered the wreckage and called 911 after the man in the car seemed unconscious. When paramedics arrived they determined the man was already dead.
The man recently lost his job as a car salesman and lived with roommates in a home in City Heights.
While the cause of the car accident is not yet determined, speeding may have been a factor in the crash. Speeding is one of the top causes of car accidents. Studies have shown and proven that a higher speed increases the likelihood of a car accident.
Our car accident lawyers know that speeding is one of the main contributing factors to all car accidents, and according the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to be a factor in 31 percent of all fatal car accidents. We have all too often seen the tragic effects of speeding as car accidents that are caused by speeding leave those involved with catastrophic injuries and even wrongful death.
