In an unfortunate incident in Havana Township, Minnesota, a 55-year-old man narrowly avoided death after his 2001 Chevrolet Impala collided with a Pepsi-branded tractor-trailer. Witnesses saw a blazing collision and the enormous rig flipping. The incident serves as a disturbing reminder that vehicles can transform into lethal weapons when there is negligence on the driver’s part.
Less than a thousand people live in the little rural village where the dramatic incident took place. The Chevrolet Impala was traveling south on 44th Avenue when it flagrantly ran a stop sign at the intersection with US Highway 14.
The impact was fatal, as the car burst into flames and skidded onto the grassy median in a burning catastrophe as seen in the video by the Department of Transportation in Minnesota. Surprisingly, both drivers survived the incident.
The Federal Highway Administration reports that about 7,000 fatalities occur at unsignalized junctions each year and it is crucial for drivers to obey traffic laws and to pay attention to road signs since they can make a life or death decision at some crossroads.
