One of the car accident reports from Monday, September 14th, disclosed that a driver lost his life in a traffic collision on Interstate 10 in California’s Cathedral City area. The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department identified the victim as Gabriel Zamora, 48, of San Bernardino.
The investigators said that a car and a box truck collided in the westbound lanes of the freeway between Date Palm Drive and Bob Hope Drive. Emergency responders arrived at the scene around 1:30 a.m. and tried to revive an unresponsive Zamora, but he died at the scene.
The sheriff’s department said that the truck driver was unharmed in the collision. The cause of the accident remains unknown, and the investigation is ongoing.
Motor vehicle accidents occur for otherwise avoidable reasons. Drivers have a vital role to play in reducing the rate of collisions on the roadway, and they can achieve this by obeying traffic rules and regulations, and following safety tips.
The latter covers using designated turn signs and signals, driving through intersections slowly and cautiously, and watching out for red-light runners and those trying to beat a yellow light. Scan the roadway every 6 to 8 seconds, and when on a two-lane road, stick to the right as the left is used mostly for passing.
Expect other drivers on the roadway to make mistakes, and if mechanical problems develop, park on the slow lane and remain inside the vehicle. Turn on the hazard light, and call for help.
