Accidents are those uncertain events that can happen to anyone at any time. It is also not necessary that if you are driving safely, you will not be involved in any accident. It can happen because of someone else’s fault as well. Recently, a video of the result of a crash between a Hyundai Verna and a Maruti Suzuki S-Cross has been shared online. It highlights how serious rear-end accidents can be.
The video of this accident has been shared on YouTube by Ajeesh Kuttan on their channel. This short clip shows the aftermath of the rear-end accident that took place between a new Hyundai Verna sedan and a Maruti Suzuki S-Cross SUV. As per the post, this accident took place at Sec 7 Panchkula in Haryana. It was noted that this accident happened at a three-way intersection.
Well, at the moment, it is very difficult to point out the main reason behind this accident. It is also very hard to blame any of the drivers involved because there is no clear video showing how this accident actually took place. However, the video shows the aftermath of the accident, and it can be noted that the impact was too hard on both vehicles as they suffered major damages. It can be observed from the video that the left rear of the Hyundai Verna sedan and the right front end of the Maruti Suzuki S-Cross have been damaged severely.
The video shows that the entire rear end of the Verna has crumbled, making the sedan look like a hatchback. Meanwhile, on the other hand, it can be noted that the Maruti Suzuki S-Cross’s entire front right was mangled up, and it was leaking green radiator fluid on the road. At the moment, there are no reports if anyone was seriously injured or not. However, from the observed impact, it can be noted that the accident might have taken place at a very high speed.
How can you avoid rear-end accidents?
As mentioned above, accidents can happen anywhere at any time. However, there are tips that can be learned so that these types of accidents can be avoided. So, in order to avoid rear-end accidents, every person requires a combination of proactive driving habits and situational awareness. Firstly, maintaining a safe following distance is crucial. The general rule is to keep at least a three-second gap between your vehicle and the one in front. This allows ample time to react if the vehicle ahead suddenly brakes or slows down. Try to adjust this distance based on weather conditions, visibility, and road surface.
Additionally, every driver on the road should be as attentive as possible in the traffic flow and anticipate potential hazards ahead. Drivers should be especially more careful at places such as intersections, traffic signals, or sudden lane changes by other drivers. Next up, another very crucial thing for any driver to do is to avoid distractions while driving. Keep your focus solely on the road and your surroundings. Every driver should refrain from texting, talking on the phone, eating, or engaging in any other activity that diverts your attention from driving.
If it becomes extremely necessary, the drivers should use hands-free devices for phone calls and pull over if you need to attend to something that requires your full attention. Additionally, regularly checking your mirrors and being aware of vehicles approaching from behind is also very important. Lastly, if you notice a vehicle is tailgating or driving aggressively behind you, safely change lanes to allow them to pass. What this does is it reduces the risk of a rear-end collision.
