According to the Colorado Springs Gazette,
18 year old, Michael McElroy, was involved in a downtown Colorado Springs car crash
early on June 11, 2010. The driver, Rickey Miller, was suspected of speeding when the car rolled over on Interstate 25 near the Fontanero exit. During the rollover accident, McElroy was thrown from the car and taken to the hospital in critical condition. Neither the driver nor the passenger were wearing seatbelts and Miller has since been arrested on suspicion of vehicular assault resulting in injury. This Colorado Springs car crash
caused major delays on I-25—especially the morning commute.
Across the United States, car crashes can cause a variety of injuries from broken bones and whiplash to more severe spinal cord injuries and head injuries. Even minor injuries can lead to permanent disabilities and chronic pain if left untreated. One of the best ways to prevent major car crash injuries is to always wear your seatbelt. In fact, according to Colorado’s Click It or Ticket brochure
, nearly 190 Colorado lives would be saved each year if everyone buckled up.
