The St. Johns County Sheriff’s Department is trying to confirm what led to the fatality and the injuries of another person who had to be airlifted to a nearby hospital with injuries. So far law enforcement has not identified anyone involved in this car crash. CR 210 is a major east-west roadway through the county that runs all the way from the beaches to the western portion of the county. This article does not say where on CR 210 the accident occurred.
Head-On Car Accidents
According to federal statistics, head-on collisions resulted in 10.1 percent of U.S. fatal crashes even though they made up only 2 percent of collisions. An experienced Florida auto accident attorney will often look at driving under the influence as one of the more common reasons a driver will drift out of his lane and into trouble. Depending on the speed of the approaching vehicle, there may be very little time to react, even for the experienced driver. Try not to jerk the steering wheel to avoid causing a rollover.
