Pflugerville Man Injured in Single-Vehicle Accident
Posted By The Carlson Law Firm || 26-Jan-2012
A 19-year-old man was injured in a single-vehicle accident Wednesday when he lost control of his vehicle, veering off the road.
Police identified the injured man as Wesley Gomez, of Pflugerville. Gomez was transported to a hospital in Lima with injuries resulting from the Hancock County car accident.
The accident reportedly took place on State Route 235 near State Route 103, where the vehicle left the roadway, smashing into several trees.
The extent of Gomez’s injuries have not been identified by authorities and police are still investigating what may have caused him to lose control of the vehicle.
Single-vehicle accidents are often traced to some sort of loss of control. Whether a vehicle becomes tripped up on terrain or objects in the road or whether a driver jerks the steering wheel and overcompensates, single vehicle accidents can be as dangerous as those involving other cars and trucks. Loss of control can cause some vehicles to roll or send them off roadways and into trees, guardrails and other objects that can cause impact the occupants of a vehicle.
Cars, trucks and SUV’s are designed to keep the occupants within them safe. Air bags, seat belts, reinforced roofs and glass designed to stay intact despite impact can all provide some protection for drivers and passengers involved in a crash. Defective or faulty auto equipment that has been inadequately designed, manufactured or services can cause serious injuries and death for those enduring an accident.
