Calimesa Man Suffers Serious Injuries after Losing Control of Car Wheels

Perhaps it is true when they say cars get into crashes more than SUVs nowadays.

Whether it's just what Sport-Utility Vehicles (SUVs) marketers say to promote new stability features or not, the series of car accident reports in California this year point to the reality of its driving hazard.

Stability problems among cars during adverse road condition were raised by recent researchers. They argued that new SUV models with stability control system can better prevent rollover than ordinary cars. They have challenged car manufacturers to compete with the new safety feature and prove reduce accident cases.

Perhaps the researches can include the accident in Interstate 15 on Tuesday to one of its case study.

According to reports, Jeffrey Gerardo, 22 years old, was driving his Saturn SL2 on Interstate 15 when he lost control of the wheels. The coupe veered off the east road and rolled several times down the embankment, reports said.

Some motorists saw the accident and tried to help Gerardo. Murrieta rescuers also came and cut the car's front door to pull him out. He suffered serious injuries and was transported to Inland Valley Medical Center for treatment of serious injuries, reports said.

Reports said the driver lose control of the wheels when the car began veering off the lane. Perhaps manufacturers can take the challenge of inventing new technology to improve car stability when the driver lifts his hand off the wheels for several seconds. This can mean installing new device or restructuring the car’s system.

Whether car manufacturers take the challenge or not, it will remain true that road hazard exists for all motorists. It is still the responsibility of the driver to inspect his car’s parts and abide with traffic laws. Failure to fulfill such duty of care reduces the driver’s chance of receiving damages from the car manufacturer’s insurance company or from the government.
