The article by The Denver Post, “RTD crash leaves one dead, 15 injured” talks about how a RTD bus ran a red light and smashed into a car spinning it then crashed into a another car sending into a steel post at a 7-eleven. 16 people were sent to the hospital including the bus driver; most of them were in serious condition. I get my permit soon and lots of my friends get their license around the same time. I am extremely excited to drive, but there is always that thought of what if that happens to me? The people that usually get hurt the worse don’t cause an accident, they are just victims. They don’t make a mistake that causes an accident and yet that one moment can change their life forever. Accidents happen, that is why they are called accidents, but some very serious accidents can be avoided. Multi-tasking is a great way to get in trouble. It seems like it is no big deal, but focusing on anything but the road for even a split second can get you into an accident.
