With July 4th gone and past, drivers and pedestrians have survived one of the most accident-prone holidays of the year. Crowded roadways and packed sidewalks contribute to the fact that Independence Day has the most death accidents out of any other day in the entire year. Families traveling to see other relatives, friends visiting friends, and Americans coming out of their homes to watch fireworks add to the hectic status of freeways and side streets. On Wednesday, July 4th, one traveller was not so lucky to escape the accident statistics of this American holiday.
July 4th, Independence Day, is known as the day with the most accidents in the entire year within the United States. With this historical day approaching closer and closer, it may seem as if the accidents are also starting to pile up. Just this morning, Tuesday, July 3—one day shy of Independence Day—a truck accident has occurred on the I-5 Southbound freeway near Norwalk.
