Drivers everywhere, not just in New Haven, Connecticut, are expected to drive safely at all times. The rules of the road are often based on the primary assumption that no driver would willingly allow a vehicle to drift between lanes and endanger the lives of other people on the road.
A recent car crash, which occurred in Columbia, Connecticut, illustrates what can go wrong if a person fails to stay in the designated lane in which that person was driving. In the accident, the driver of one car crossed into the opposing lane and hit an approaching vehicle, head on. Both the driver and the victim involved in the head-on collision were taken to nearby hospitals and both people were treated for broken legs. The first driver was also injured in the chest and had to be airlifted by the LifeStar Service, according to state police.
