Police suspect speed was a contributing factor in the crash. This car accident in Ohio demonstrates how speeding vehicles can lead to car accidents. A small bus traveling at 30 mph will travel over 80 feet on an asphalt road after the brakes are applied before it comes to a complete stop. This distance is extended as more passengers are placed onto the bus. Also, this distance is traveled in less than 1.5 seconds. Accidents happen very quickly and drivers and pedestrians must make responsible decisions. Otherwise the situation can spiral out of control very quickly. Luckily for these drivers, no pedestrians were hit by the colliding vehicles.
