Road Disaster Recap: Major Accidents of the Week

Posted on : January 24, 2019

You would think people would leave dangerous challenges in 2018, however a “Bird Box” challenge has hit the streets causing people to drive and walk the streets blindfolded! You would think since it’s the beginning of 2019 there would be better driving behavior and fewer accidents. On the contrary, accidents happen every single day. So here’s what happened on the road around the US.

Crash Resulted in a Power Outage

The community at Lake Anne, Michigan, experienced a blackout during dinner time. More than 100 homes were without power starting at 7 p.m. due to a vehicle driving recklessly and crashing into a power box for a whole community. Families in these homes had to push through with lit candles and flashlights before they could see their digital clocks light up at 2 a.m.

Giving The Cold Shoulder

    Here is a quick reminder to be aware of your surroundings when you’re on the road. Do not rely on your tires to break when you need them to – especially in inclement weather. They can slip and slide on the icy ground, which is what happened to Jaimy Weber. Weber was driving through Highway 35 in Wisconsin when she lost control of her steering wheel and slid onto the train tracks. Unfortunately, a train was up ahead and couldn’t stop in time to avoid a collision. Even though Weber’s car is in critical condition, there were no injuries involved.

“Bird Box” Challenge – Netflix says NO

    The last hit movie of 2018 was a psychological thriller where most of the time the main characters had to wear a blindfold to keep them from committing involuntary suicide. The movie was such a hit that a few people decided to walk and drive blindfolded while filming and posting it on Youtube. Unfortunately, this lead to a 17-year-old girl in Utah driving on a highway blindfolded – resulting in an accident with another driver. Lucky, no one was hurt or injured. Youtube didn’t hesitate to take down the videos and address the public about this senseless act. Netflix also made a statement to not participate in this challenge.
