Montgomery, AL- Many car and truck accidents in Alabama, and the country overall, occur at intersections. In a 2008 study, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration found that 40 percent of the more than 5.8 million traffic crashes that year took place at intersections. Crashes at intersections are not only prevalent, but they are also deadly. That’s what a recent accident in Alabama demonstrates.
The fatal crash occurred on Monday, June 27 in Tuscaloosa on Highway 69. One witness to the 3:00 p.m. crash told WIAT-TV that a GMC SUV struck a Dodge Charger whose driver was making a left turn. The SUV then burst into flames, and both people inside perished.
Two passengers in the Dodge Charger were taken to a local hospital for treatment, but their injuries were not serious, according to WIAT-TV.

Intersections are lethal because numerous roads, autos, and pedestrians are congregating in one place, so it’s only a matter of time before someone makes a mistake, like hitting a left-turning vehicle or failing to see a pedestrian in a crosswalk. A motorist may be distracted or inattentive, so they plow through red lights or stop signs and often collide with objects or people.
When a motorist, truck driver, motorcyclist, bicyclist or pedestrian comes to an intersection, they need to be aware. There is so much activity at an intersection, so individuals need to be vigilant and pay close attention to their surroundings. It takes mere seconds for a crash to occur. According to the NHTSA, the two most common types of accidents at intersections involve a vehicle that is turning left or a vehicle that left the roadway. Lane departures and rear-end collision are also common data from the federal agency shows.
