Many residents are ecstatic once spring arrives. The temperatures start rising, the sun stays out longer, and most of the winter hazards such as snow and ice are starting to melt. Since winter and summer are often seen as the most dangerous driving seasons of the year, motorists feel like they don’t have to worry as much about terrible driving conditions for a while between March through May.
Throughout the calendar year, certain months are designated to bring awareness to a wide range of both social and health-related issues. For the past three decades, March has been designated as Brain Injury Awareness Month. The point of these campaigns is to draw attention to the difficulties that victims of brain injuries encounter in everyday life. There are countless California families who have been impacted by these often devastating injuries.
In the moments after a crash, victims often feel confused and disoriented. In spite of the impulse to exit one's vehicle, emergency responders urge victims to remain inside their vehicles after car accidents unless there are extenuating circumstances. Sadly, for reasons that are yet unclear, a California resident lost his life in the moments after his truck jackknifed.
