California is well-known for its car culture. Interstates connect with gigantic cloverleaves. State residents depend on vehicles to provide their transportation in the nation's third-largest state by area where it would take about 15 hours to travel the length of the state on Interstate 5. California roads are teaming with traffic.
California is well-known for its heavy traffic. Car accidents occur every day throughout the state, and whiplash is a common injury suffered by drivers and passengers. Whiplash describes neck injuries caused by sudden forces, usually from a car crash, that fling a person's head back and forth very quickly.
Post-traumatic stress disorder is a serious problem that can affect some victims of car accidents in California. Although every car accident victim is likely to feel some degree of trauma, the feelings become a real problem when they don't go away or they become stronger.
The California Highway Patrol continues to investigate a Dec. 26 accident that resulted in four deaths and sent two people to the hospital, reportedly. The Fair Oaks incident happened around 1:30 a.m. on San Juan Avenue.
