When a driver finds it difficult to navigate the roadway and travel at high speeds with accuracy, he or she may risk the safety and well being of his or her passengers and the others on the roadway. An elderly man recently lost his life after a fatal accident on a Missouri highway. The afternoon crash involved only one vehicle and took place near the intersection of two local highways.
Reports indicate that an elderly woman was driving an SUV when she lost control. It is believed that the SUV first went off of the roadway on the left side, causing the driver to jerk the wheel to the right in an attempt to recover its position. The overcorrection then caused the vehicle to travel to the right side of the road where it smashed into a road sign.
