Passengers' Behavior Causes Car Accident

The accident occurred when the woman, a passenger in the front seat of a Ford Explorer, began arguing with a passenger in the back seat. She asked the driver to pull the car over, but before he had a chance to do so, she grabbed the steering wheel and turned it hard towards the right. The driver of the Explorer lost control of the vehicle and it overturned and then crashed into two other cars.

Luckily no one was killed in the crash, but everyone was taken to the hospital and treated for their non-life threatening injuries.

This type of case brings to light how you may be attentive in your driving and inadvertently be involved in another crash caused by someone else's negligence. That is why drivers need to practice defensive driving so that they can potentially avoid these types of scenarios.

If you've been injured in an accident, you should contact a personal injury attorney so that they can help you figure out if you have a case and work with you to find the best approach that fits your situation and benefits you the most.

The woman, 28, was charged Feb. 29. She turned herself into police, posted bail and was released.
