Mysterious car accident prompts investigation

Accidents are expected during holiday weekends. This is why law enforcement agencies step up enforcement of drunk driving laws in order to prevent tragedies. Despite these efforts, car accidents in Florida can happen on any day of the week.

The story of a woman killed in an accident on County Road 209 in Clay County exemplifies this. According to a news4jax.com report, the woman was travelling westbound when she reportedly drove onto the grass shoulder and lost control of her car, spinning into the path of an oncoming pickup track that was carrying construction equipment. The other driver was not hurt.

It remains to be seen what actually caused the woman to lose control of her car, and authorities are investigating the matter. Nevertheless, it exemplifies the need for a thorough investigation to determine the exact cause of the accident. The car running off the road may be only the tip of the iceberg. Questions must be asked as to what caused the driver to lose control and whether it could have been prevented.

Indeed, driver error is the culprit in many accidents, but what may happen if the accident was caused by a mechanical failure of some kind? If that was the case, the manufacturer could be held liable for failing to correct a dangerous defect.
