Early morning SUV rollover on 101 injures driver

 

One person sustained major injuries in an early morning solo vehicle rollover accident on U.S. Highway 101 in Mountain View, a California Highway Patrol Sgt. John Carman said.

CHP received reports of the crash in the fast lane of northbound Highway 101 just south of Ellis Street at 3:43 a.m.

Officers found a heavily damaged silver SUV overturned in the fast lane and debris scattered across the lane, Carman said.

The driver sustained facial lacerations from the crash was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment, Carman said.

A Caltrans sweeper crew was working to clear the debris before 6 a.m.

What caused this crash? Cell phone? DUI? Fell asleep? Was the driver cited?

Cell phones don't "cause" crashes..geez. That is like saying cars cause crashes, or guns kill people, or ..well, you get the point.

Millions of us drive with cell phones all the time, and we don't crash.

Even more of us drive cars, and we don't crash.

Crashes are caused by either something beyond your control ( a tree falls on you) or by your own carelessness...

Maybe cell phones don't cause crashes, but cell phones do encourage carelessness. Web Link
