California drivers typically understand how important it is to follow the rules of the road. Using seat belts, adhering to the speed limit and staying aware of surroundings are all safety techniques commonly used by drivers who want to make it to their second destination in one piece. Sadly, all it takes is one negligent driver to cause a devastating car accident.
A vehicle was apparently stopped at an area traffic light when it was struck from behind and thrust into the intersection. The force of the impact was so great that the vehicle burst into flames, killing one of its occupants and seriously injuring another. A third vehicle was sideswiped as a result of the initial wreck, injuring the driver and sending him or her to the hospital.
