Centerline Car Crashes in Utah
More often than not, when a driver crosses the centerline of a roadway, they are not paying enough attention to the road.
This mistake can result in head-on collisions due to distracted motorists who fail to look out for hazards while behind the wheel.
If you are involved in a head-on crash, you can sustain severe injuries, and in some cases, these accidents can even be fatal. Surviving family members should protect their legal rights by contacting a Utah car crash attorney.
