Weather is often blamed for a fatal accident, but it is sometimes more a driver's reaction to deteriorating weather conditions than the weather itself that should be blamed. All drivers know that poor road conditions, whether due to snow, ice or rain, warrant a lower, safer speed and require a longer braking distance than ideal conditions. This is all too clear for one Nebraska family whose lives were forever changed by a fatal accident that took place during a snowstorm.
Single vehicle accidents are an all-too-common occurrence on roads all across America. Many of these accidents are merely the result of driver error, which combined with the speed that the vehicle is traveling, can result in deadly consequences. In a recent car accident on Interstate 80 in Nebraska, a girl has died when the SUV she was riding in flipped.
Farmers driving tractors along Nebraska roads are a common sight for many motorists. Unfortunately, there are times when these slow moving vehicles become involved in a fatal accident. Other vehicles traveling faster than them may not see the tractor in time to avoid a collision from occurring.
Losing a loved one unexpectedly can be terribly difficult. People in Lincoln and others living elsewhere may not know how to move forward with their lives. Their grief may be unimaginable.
People who live in the Midwest are used to extreme weather conditions. In the summer, many states experience extreme heat. In the winter, many Midwestern states are hit with frigid temperatures and snow storms.
Car accidents happen frequently in Nebraska and beyond. Despite their frequency, car accidents can be life-changing experiences for some people. A serious car accident may leave some people with debilitating injuries. Sadly, many accidents prove to be fatal.
