A Waco, Texas, woman driving a white Cadillac was injured in a wreck involving three other cars on Tuesday, May 8.
KWTX reports that the woman was taken by ambulance to a hospital, but details of her injuries have not been released. The other three motorists were not injured in the collision.
Police told the news station that around 8:30 a.m. Tuesday one of the drivers didn’t stop at a stop sign, which caused a pickup truck and another car to crash. The other two drivers were involved in separate fender benders while trying to avoid the initial crash. KWTX footage shows the Cadillac being towed away from the accident scene at the intersection of Bosque Boulevard and Melrose Street.
A study previously conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety found that about 70 percent of all crashes occur at stop signs. In most cases, drivers younger than 18 or older than 65 were found to be at fault in stop sign violations.
The Texas Car Accident Lawyers with Daniel Stark Injury Lawyers encourage Texas drivers to be vigilant of stop signs, and we wish the injured woman a speedy recovery. We want to remind Texas drivers that failing to stop or yield at a stop sign puts pedestrians and other motorists in grave danger.
