It’s my hope that all people injured in this unfortunate accident are being able to recover quickly from their wounds. I encourage drivers to follow traffic regulations and to always yield to stop signs at all intersections. If you’re always aware of the road ahead and the traffic surrounding you, accidents can be avoided and injuries could be prevented.
I encourage you to never ignore road signs. Stay safe and keep others safe by staying focused while behind the wheel and never giving in to distractions that could cost your life.
