TRAFFIC SLOWS DOWN AT ENTRANCE RAMPS SO MORE RISK OF MULTI CAR CRASHES
The Minnesota State Patrol reported a multi vehicle crash yesterday at Westbound I-94 ramp existing to Highway 241. All involved vehicles were westbound I-94 exiting to Hwy 241. Vehicles on the ramp were slowing due to a stalled vehicle. The rear-most vehicle, the Nissan Sentra rear ended the Nissan Murano, pushing the Nissan Murano into the Nissan A2S. The Nissan A2S was then pushed into the Honda Accord.
Car accidents near an entrance ramp are very common. When cars are driving on the highway at highway speeds, traffic can suddenly slow, or even stop, as other vehicles start to merge onto the highway at an entrance ramp. Unfortunately, in this case, there was a stalled vehicle that caused the problem and the crash. It is important to be aware of upcoming entrance ramps as you are driving on a highway and stay alert for sudden changes in traffic speed. But there is nothing you can do if the driver behind you is not paying attention and you are rear-ended. In that situation, you should call us and speak with a lawyer for a free consultation.
