Last Thursday, around 10 a.m. an accident happened at Mecklenburg Health Care in Charlotte, NC. An employee of the health care center whose name has been withheld was immediately rushed to the hospital when a car crashed into the health center. The employee’s exact condition was not released.
Fire-fighters and first responders came to the rescue and removed the car from the rubble, and stabilized the building. Fortunately, the crash did not affect patient care in the least. Meanwhile, the driver of the car who is at fault did not sustain any serious injuries from the crash.
According to a 1985 report based on British and American crash data found driver error, intoxication and other human factors contribute wholly or partly to about 93% of crashes. Statistics of vehicle-property damage is fast rising and it is even more uncertain than for injuries. Most common conclusions as to why these accidents happen would be distracted driving, speeding, or even drivers may be under influence.
