Speeding Car Without Headlights On Strikes Police Vehicle, Injuries Follow

Traffic accidents can happen to anyone. Often we think that police officers do not fall into that category, but that was not the case early in February. Two police officers suffered a traffic accident when a driver ran a red light and collided with their car in an intersection.

Specific details of the accident were not released, but according to the articles the police suffered no real injuries, but the driver of the car was listed as being in “critical but stable condition.”

We All Make Mistakes

According to the police the man was speeding without his lights on at 4:25AM, almost three hours before dawn. Forgetting to turn lights on, especially in a well-lit city is a common mistake, but still a ticket-worthy offense. Add the forgotten lights to a collision and a ticket suddenly becomes an at-fault accident.

Be safe, double-check lights. Do not drive if under the influence or even suffering from lack of sleep. Lives are at stake every time someone turns the ignition key.
