A multi-vehicle accident that occurred on Monday morning caused multiple personal injuries for car occupants. Around 8:06 am, the motor vehicle crash took place on Garners Ferry Road in Columbia, South Carolina near the Woodhill Shopping Center. Allegedly, an SUV driver who fell asleep at the wheel caused the multi-vehicle accident and several victims sustained a range of injuries although no individuals incurred critical injuries.
Accidents caused by drowsy driving put other drivers and passengers in danger of sustaining personal injuries or even fatalities. When motorists lose control of their vehicles, the results could be catastrophic and may instigate multi-vehicle accidents. Other contributing factors in a crash include intoxicated driving, texting while driving, and speeding.
