Two people inside the vehicle were trapped and required assisted rescue by officials at the scene.
Do Single-Vehicle Crashes Occur More Often on Highways?
Not really. According to NHTSA, one of the road conditions that increase the likelihood of a single-vehicle crash occurring is lane curvature. It was found that curving lanes have more reported single-vehicle crashes (more than 30%) than straight lanes. Thus, with this in mind, county/city or state officials responsible for the road infrastructure should have implemented more precautionary measures to ensure that single-vehicle crashes will not happen more often in this road type. If you feel that your single-vehicle crash was caused by improper road management, you should know that you can file a claim against the state or county/city responsible.
