In today’s world, we’re constantly on the go. We’re juggling work, family, and social obligations, and sometimes it feels like we’re barely keeping our heads above water. So it’s no surprise that car accidents are on the rise.
According to a recent article from ABC13, a driver was trapped in their car and slammed into an apartment complex after a crash on the Gulf Freeway. The driver was rushed to the hospital, but their condition is unknown.
“They put him on a stretcher. He had a neck brace on, and I’m going to be honest, he wasn’t moving very much,” Philip Serna, a witness, said.
The crash happened at about 6:45 a.m. Monday in the 11000 block of the Gulf Freeway, inbound at Hartsook Street.
SkyEye was at the scene and captured video of the car, which appeared to have left the road and slammed into the apartment complex.
This is just one example of the many accidents that happen every day. And while we may not be able to prevent all of them, there are some things we can do to minimize the risk.
