Water Works Park car accident claims 1 life, injures another

Monday morning in Water Works Park, a single-vehicle accident claimed the life of one man, and injured another.

Des Moines police responded to an accident report around 7 a.m. on Monday, and found a vehicle near the north entrance to the Water Works Park, partly submerged in the water. Police pronounced a 23-year-old man dead at the scene, and a 28-year-old Des Moines man was transported to a nearby hospital to be treated for minor injuries.

According to police, the car accident had no witnesses, but it seemed as if the driver had lost control of his vehicle while attempting to turn on a road near the park. The vehicle collided with a cement structure, causing it to plummet into the water.

Our thoughts are with the victim’s family and friends during this difficult time.



Low tire pressure causes car accidents, according to study

It is important to know the signs of tire damage and wear, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. A recent study released by the NHTSA shows that low tire pressure is connected to an increased risk of car accidents.

Data was collected from car accidents that took place between 2005 and 2007, before automatic tire pressure systems were required in motor vehicles. This data showed that car accidents were three times more likely to occur if a vehicle’s tires were underinflated by more than 25 percent.

Although the tire pressure systems that are in newer car models are designed to alert a driver when his or her tire pressure is low, they are not meant to replace monthly manual tire pressure checks. The NHTSA recommends checking tire pressure each month to maintain accuracy and prevent accidents.

Please contact the car accident lawyers of LaMarca Law Group, P.C., by calling 877-327-2600 if you or someone you know has been injured in a car accident due to tire defects.
