When you are travelling down the roadway, you know that there are risks. However, the last thing you expect is to see a vehicle coming at you head on. That was what one semi-truck driver recently experienced on Interstate 15.

We know that one man is facing DUI charges after he slammed into a semi-truck head-on while cruising down Interstate 15. The man was driving his Toyota Tacoma northbound in the southbound lanes just north of state Route 76.
“It’s pretty much a miracle no one died in this,” said California Highway Patrol Sgt. Curtis Martin.
Police were trying to get to the vehicle before a crash occurred. They had received a call about it moment before. Unfortunately, the crash happened before they got there.
The semi-truck driver says he tried to swerve out of the way but ended up jackknifing the truck.
The driver of the Tacoma was arrested under suspicion of DUI. Thankfully, nobody was seriously injured.
We know that this incident could have been much worse. Drunk drivers terrorize the roadways. For the latest reporting year in California, we know that 29% of all traffic fatalities happened because of alcohol-impaired drivers.
However, they are not the only hazard. We know that those who willfully disregard the speed limit and operate recklessly cause a tremendous number of crashes each year. We also know that there are far too many people who still think it is okay to text and drive or watch videos and drive. Distracted driving is dangerous driving.
Overall, there were more than 278,000 vehicle crash injuries during the latest reporting year in the state. It is not uncommon for us to see the following injuries in crash victims:
