While this case is a tragic accident, the driver that went off the road should be held accountable for the damage she caused to her passengers. Accidents involving one vehicle are often caused by distracted and/or intoxicated drivers. This case highlights the significant costs distracted drivers can cause in accidents when they fail to give full attention to their driving. When a vehicle goes off the road at a high rate of speed, injuries are likely to occur once the vehicle crashes. When accidents occur on roads with high rates of speed, such as State Route 2, the injuries quickly rise in severity. In this case, it caused the front passenger to lose her life. This accident was clearly avoidable and the driver should be held accountable for her negligence.
