About Vehicle Accidents
Car collisions are very dangerous situations on their own, but as can be seen in this case it can very quickly cause another accident. However, the cause of the crash into a building being a prior traffic accident is something unusual when it comes to damage to buildings from car crashes. It is very fortunate that there were no injuries beyond minor ones as these accidents can involve something as severe as broken bones, and even hear or spinal injuries.
The cause for car crashes into buildings is usually an operator error or pedal error. For operator errors, drivers usually accelerated or were at high speeds, or were in the wrong gear. For pedal errors, it meant that drivers stepped on the gas when they meant to step on the brake. Other, smaller factors are situation-based, such as driving under influence, weather conditions, medical emergencies, or in this case, traffic accidents. A very small percentage are for people who intentionally ram buildings to commit theft. From these causes, lack of control is a common feature.
As always, we urge everyone to drive with caution and practice safe driving wherever you go. Doing so minimizes damage and injuries you can inflict not only on yourself, but on others as well.
