Even with normal, everyday traffic, getting to and from work can be a challenge for most people in West Virginia and elsewhere. When motor vehicle accidents occur along commuters' routes, they can shut down major arteries and cause delays that last for hours. Such was the case recently because of a crash on I-79 that affected the morning rush hour.
There are many things that drivers may take for granted as they travel on West Virginia roadways. For example, some people overlook the fact that something as simple as obeying traffic lights can prevent a car accident with significant consequences. Unfortunately, two women were recently injured following a crash that allegedly occurred because of a driver who failed to obey traffic signals.
West Virginia roads and highways are traveled frequently, both by residents commuting to their daily activities as well as visitors who enjoy the miles and miles of scenic byways. However, with thousands of travelers on the roads each day, it is inevitable that motor vehicle accidents regularly occur. Unfortunately, some of these accidents result in serious injuries to those involved. A recent crash of two cars near Lashmeet caused injuries to seven people.
