A lot of accidents on the road happened because drivers are in a hurry and some are excessively speeding, distracted or simply intentionally do not follow the rules and regulations. Every year in Canada, about 421,000 people are injured in crashes that have involved a driver who was distracted in some way. Over 78% of all distracted drivers are distracted because they have been texting while driving.
Yesterday, February 25th a serious crash happened in the area of Lagimodiere Boulevard and Warman Road. The traffic is being rerouted to a nearby road. Winnipeg police said they were called to the area just before 9 a.m.
Two people were delivered to the hospital after the crash. One person was taken to the hospital in stable condition, the other in unstable condition. There is no further information about the current condition of the injured people.
As of now, there is no official statement from Winnipeg Police, officers are still working at the scene of the crash.
Thankfully, no one else was injured in the accident, the vehicle also got serious damage, no estimates available yet.
Most of such accidents could be avoided simply by following the rules and driving regulations, by following the speed limit and actually paying attention to what is in front of you. Fellow Winnipeggers please don’t text and drive, follow the speed limits, the limits there for a good reason, keep our roads safe and easy to drive. Let’s all be responsible drivers and care for each other, so at the end of the day, we can all come back home to our loved ones.
