How California drivers can learn from a woman's traumatic crash

Each year 1.7 million people suffer from some form of brain injury. These injuries can be devastating, and sometimes go unnoticed when victims don't realize their injuries are actually affecting their brains. The leading causes of these brain injuries across the nation are car and boat accidents, and the resulting brain injuries can range from a minor concussion to a more serious and traumatic injury.

In one example of the severity of these accidents, a recent car accident left a young California woman comatose and in need of brain surgery. She was driving with a friend when she came upon a previous collision. When she attempted to evade the accident, she struck another vehicle. She slipped into a coma following the crash.

Though she has survived and begun recovering, she is still experiencing issues with her memory and her ability to form sentences from this injury to such a delicate part of her body. Her injuries as a result of this accident have also greatly decreased her ability to live the "normal life" of a young woman as she finds herself going to medical treatments rather than socializing with her friends.

As we can see from this young woman's story, a car accident can change a person's life in an instant. Serious brain injuries can be debilitating and sometimes have permanent consequences. As this woman continues to courageously work toward a recovery, hopefully California drivers will consider her story while on the road. Safe driving can go a long ways toward preventing similar crashes on California roads.
