When people are driving down a road, they need to be constantly aware of everyone else who is in the area at the time. This may seem elementary and something that we all learned in driver’s education class, but the fact of the matter is that even a one-second lapse in focus can make the difference between arriving at a destination safely and total disaster. Tragically, something went very wrong on Tuesday that led to a White Oak car accident that took the life of one person and left a baby in critical condition.
According to the authorities, this White Oak car accident occurred on Tuesday at just before noon. The unidentified female driver of a Chrysler sedan was stopped in the westbound lane of Highway 80 as it waited to turn left onto Hollingsworth. Suddenly, a Dodge truck hit it from behind, sending it veering into oncoming traffic, where it was soon hit by an oncoming Chevrolet SUV. The driver of the Chrysler was killed and an 8-month-old child was critically injured.
