Multi-Vehicle Accidents in California
Distracted driving in California has become an epidemic and is completely preventable. According to a recent study, it only takes three seconds after a drivers attention is diverted from the roadway for a crash to occur. Distracted driving has been compared to drunk driving because it follows the same psychological pattern. When drivers get away with driving distracted, they continue to practice the habit until an accident happens. Police will conduct a thorough investigation to determine who was at fault and what occurred prior to the initial impact.
