Interstates can be deadly.
Interstates are particularly dangerous places for car crashes. The very design of an interstate is set up so that vehicles can travel at very high speeds, which means that drivers need more time to react to any given hazard. If there are obstructions on the roadway, the proper way to handle it is to call the authorities and let them know. It is far too dangerous for any individual to get out of their vehicle on an interstate and, as this particular story demonstrates, it’s difficult for drivers to stop before they strike someone who has taken this risk.
Interstate accidents oftentimes turned deadly. Whether they occur on crowded exit and entry ramps, on the open interstate itself or on the shoulders of the interstate, the fast traveling traffic and the crowded conditions oftentimes make such accidents result in the worst possible case scenario.
