It is very important for motorists to drive responsibly when behind the wheel. This includes following all applicable yielding rules when out on the roads.
Failing to properly yield can be a very harmful type of conduct. Such conduct can result in motor vehicle collisions occurring.
Auto crashes can sometimes result in multiple people getting hurt. This can be seen in a car accident that occurred earlier this week in Dutchess County.
The crash happened in Milan on Monday. That afternoon, a car was attempting to make a left turn onto Route 199. The car contained four individuals. It was being driven by a 42-year-old woman.
Allegedly, the 42-year-old woman failed to yield during the above-mentioned turn attempt and a collision occurred between the 42-year-old woman’s car and a car that was travelling along Route 199 which was being driven by a 44-year-old man. In total, the 44-year-old man’s car contained five individuals.
According to the article on midhudsonnews.com which reported this story, all nine of the individuals who were in the two above-mentioned vehicles suffered injuries in the accident. They were taken to area hospitals after the crash. Reportedly, one of the individuals, a 13-year-old who was a passenger of the 42-year-old woman’s car, may have sustained serious head injuries in the crash. The injuries the other eight individuals suffered reportedly are minor in nature.
It has been reported that authorities issued a summons for failure to yield at a stop sign to the 42-year-old woman in connection to this motor vehicle crash.
