Authorities say weather could have contributed to Eldorado crash

When the sun is shining and the roads in Roswell are clear, everyone may a good driver. Yet introduce poor conditions into the equation, and suddenly things may get a little more dicey for those on the road. To some, the need to adjust one's driving patterns to account for changing road conditions might seem quite clear, yet it is not that way for others. They may trust enough in their driving skills that they believe whatever sort of obstacle the road or weather throws at them, they will be able to handle. Sadly, such drivers are often proven wrong. 

Unfortunately, being proven wrong often requires involving others, as well. Car accidents (particularly those that occur in unfavorable conditions) will sometimes extend their reach to claim multiple vehicles. Any time more cars are added to a collision, the chances of all of the people involved walking away diminishes. This fact was on full display in the multi-car crash that recently occurred near Eldorado. The people eventually required medical treatment following a pile-up that eventually ended up encompassing 9 vehicles. The conditions of those accident victims have yet to be reported. 

Authorities are still looking into what (or who) may have caused the crash. What is known, however, is that heavy rain (including hail) hit the area immediately prior to the crash (the storms themselves contributed to low visibility. In such conditions, one is expected to slow down in order to lessen the odds of losing control of his or her vehicle (the law even mandates it). Those who fail to do so may open themselves up to liability claims should the be involved in a car accident. Anyone wanting to initiate such a claim may first want to secure the services of an experienced attorney.
