Elderly Driver Dies after Hitting Tree in Saragota

Aging cannot be avoided. When you get old, your body may not be able to function properly, as seen in the number of seniors who suffer from poor eyesight, hearing problems, and other medical conditions.

As a driver, you should always be aware of your driving skills. If you feel that your age is already affecting the way you drive, it is advisable that you give up your license in order to avoid sustaining injuries or even dying in an accident.

A 70-year-old male driver recently died after he slammed into a tree in Saragota.

According to California Highway Patrol (CHP) officers, the 1979 Volkswagen Beetle being driven by Bob Pease, from San Francisco, slammed head-on into a tree while he was moving out of the Mountain Winery driveway.

Pease died immediately due to the impact. He was not wearing his seatbelt when the solo-car accident occurred.

Authorities have not yet determined whether alcohol was involved in the incident.

For more information about car accidents, it is advisable that you consult a Los Angeles personal injury lawyer.

  1. Perhaps the elderly driver should have worn his seatbelt: It could have prevented the fatal injuries. Even younger drivers fail to abide with the seatbelt law and suffer catastrophic accidents. I suggest the California Highway Patrol officers implement more effective ways to discipline motorists on the freeway.

  2. I hope car manufacturers start innovating safety equipment for elderly drivers. This will help reduce the fatal crashes involving senior citizens. It also will boost driving confidence of aged drivers.

  4. What you’re saying makes sense, Zara. Seatbelts are installed in vehicles because they can save occupants from injuries in the event of an accident. I hope drivers will not jeopardize their safety by failing to use such an important tool.
