Whenever a car accident occurs, there is a chance that someone will be injured. An injury suffered from a car accident, whether serious or minor, can cause individuals to miss time from work and incur medical bills. In this tough economy, this could be the spark that causes a family’s financial situation to become burdened.

A morning crash occurred at New Hampshire Avenue and University Boulevard in Takoma Park. A Honda struck a Saturn that was waiting for a traffic light to change. The collision caused the Saturn to hit a Nissan car that was also waiting for the traffic light to change. One of the Saturn passengers, a two-year-old boy, suffered critical injuries while a 10-month-old girl was taken to a hospital for observation. Other injuries in the accident included the drivers of the Nissan, Honda and Saturn. Those injuries were not life threatening.

It is important that drivers pay attention to the road at all times, especially when driving through traffic. Paying attention and removing any potential distractions from your car can help keep accidents like this one from happening. This accident could have been prevented if the driver of the Honda recognized that the other two cars were waiting their turns at the traffic light.
