Rear-end crashes are not only one of the most frequent types of motor vehicle accidents, but also result in a large number of injuries and fatalities, as well as substantial property damage. Data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) shows rear-end collisions account for approximately 30 percent of all car accidents and are also responsible for 30 percent of all accident injuries.
One such accident occurred over the weekend in western New York. According to an article from the Messenger Post, the crash happened this past Friday evening, at the corner of White Springs Road and Route 5 in the town of Geneva, New York.
Reports from deputies with the Ontario County Sheriff’s Department indicate a 56-year-old female driver, from Newark, was operating a vehicle that was carrying a male passenger. When the woman began to slow down for a stopped vehicle, a 21-year-old male driver who was following failed to recognize the traffic ahead and plowed into the trunk of the woman’s car.
All three motorists involved in the New York Car Accident sustained car accident injuries and were treated at a local hospital and later released.
