Every year, over 100,000 car accidents occur in the state of Wisconsin. Car accidents can have serious consequences. Some of these consequences include property damage, injuries, and even fatalities. Because of the risks associated with being in a car accident, it is important that drivers practice safe driving. Unfortunately, drivers sometimes engage in behaviors that can increase the likelihood of being involved in a car accident. Some things that can increase the likelihood of being involved in a car accident include exceeding the speed limit or driving too fast for weather conditions, distracted driving and driving under the influence. Recently, an accident on I-43 occurred in which driving under the influence is believed to have played a role.
The accident happened on Sunday, January 10th around 4:00 in the morning. The accident occurred on I-43 near Bender Road and involved a single vehicle. Law enforcement officials believe that the accident occurred when the vehicle spun out. During the spin out, the vehicle rolled over onto its roof. Law enforcement officials responded to the scene of the accident. After the arrival of law enforcement officials, the driver was arrested for operating while under the influence. Thankfully, only minor injuries were reported as a result of the accident. Law enforcement officials are continuing to investigate the accident.
Driving under the influence is incredibly dangerous. It increases the likelihood of being involved in a car accident. Driving under the influence can reduce coordination, reduce concentration, decrease vision, and inhibit judgment. All of these contribute to a greater likelihood of being involved in a car accident. Drivers should never get behind the wheel if they are under the influence. By practicing safe driving and avoiding dangerous driving behaviors, such as driving while under the influence, drivers can help keep the roads safer for themselves and others.
