Hampton Car Accident Flips SUV, Injures 2

A multi-vehicle accident in Hampton sent two people to the hospital on Wednesday. According to authorities, the crash occurred when a gold SUV was traveling northbound on North Armistead avenue and was struck by a white van heading eastbound on W. Pembroke avenue. The collision sent the SUV crashing into a black sedan in the westbound lane of W. Pembroke avenue before flipping upside down.

The drivers of the SUV and van were taken to the hospital with injuries described as non-life threatening. The details of this crash remain sparse, with police still investigating the accident. No charges have been filed against any of the drivers so far. That is, of course, subject to change once more is learned about how this incident occurred.

There are a variety of possible errors and acts of negligence that might have caused this wreck. Distracted driving, speeding too quickly while in traffic, and failing to use seat belts are all likely factors in multi-vehicle accidents like this one. Each one of these are avoidable, which goes to show how important it is to take the extra time to buckle up, stay alert and be responsive while behind the wheel. Defensive driving is key to avoiding scenarios like this one.

Of course, not every accident is preventable – particularly if you are not the at fault driver.
