One reason why fatal car crashes are so tragic is that they are so unexpected. Drivers can exercise as much caution on the road as possible, but they cannot rely on other drivers to do the same.

Collision With a Dump Truck Results in One Fatality
The Eagle reports on a tragic accident earlier this month that resulted in one fatality. According to state troopers, a 24-year-old high school band director was heading south on U.S. 231 while a dump truck was heading north. The dump truck struck the man’s Mini Cooper, crushing it. Responders rushed the man to a local hospital where he later died due to sustained injuries; the driver of the dump truck was uninjured.
The band director was married and had a 2-year-old daughter with another child on the way. A teacher at the high school where he worked described him as a dedicated educator and claimed he had just launched his career. This was the second time that this particular high school suffered a loss because of a car wreck in recent years, and police are still investigating the crash.
In July 2008, the high school’s football coach died from injuries sustained in a collision. A teenager was driving a truck when he failed to yield and struck the coach’s vehicle, which was also transporting four other high school coaches as passengers.
Crash Injures Four, Including Two Children
The Advertiser reports on a wreck that occurred earlier this month that injured two children and two adults. The accident occurred at around 1 in the afternoon, when a man driving a 2004 Buick Rendezvous collided with the passenger side of a 2002 Ford Taurus. The Buick spun before coming to a stop in the eastbound lane, and the Ford veered off the road before stopping in a nearby embankment.
The driver of the Buick was not hurt, but his three passengers, a 61-year-old, a 6-year-old and a 9-year-old, sustained injuries. Responders treated them at the scene. The driver of the Ford, a 79-year-old woman, sustained serious injuries, and emergency personnel transported her to a local hospital where medical staff treated her injuries.
The woman remains in intensive care. According to state troopers, police are still investigating the accident.
