Heidi Cai Killed in Deadly Vehicle Accident on Interstate 15

December 2, 2020 – Heidi Cai, age 56, was killed on Tuesday morning around 5:45 A.M. Moreover, the Las Vegas resident passed away in a rear-end collision that occurred on southbound I-15. 
  
Initially, a vehicle traveling in the same direction struck another vehicle from behind. Due to the collision, each driver ended up losing control, and their vehicles both rolled over. 
  
Upon arrival, emergency responders located Ms. Cai lying in the center divider of the road. As a result, life-saving procedures were provided. 

Unfortunately, Ms. Cai succumbed to her wounds. Sadly, she was pronounced dead upon arrival at approximately 6:12 AM. 
  
Afterward, both drivers were transported to Las Vegas area hospitals. 
  
An ongoing investigation will be held by the Barstow office of the California Highway Patrol

Stay Alert When Driving on the Road 

It can be daunting to drive at high speeds along packed interstate highways. Additionally, here are a few safety tips to help prevent car accidents when driving on crowded roads. 

The most important thing to remember is to buckle up. Furthermore, using a seat belt while operating a vehicle should go without saying.  

Still, recent data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) shows that about 10% of drivers still do not wear seat belts.  

Inevitably, seat belts save lives. Do not forget to wear a seat belt every time a vehicle is in motion. 

Another thing to remember, using a cellphone while driving is extremely dangerous and should be avoided if possible. Also, blue tooth hands-free devices work well too.  

According to the NHTSA, when a driver takes his or her eyes off the road for just five seconds at 55 miles per hour, it is the equivalent of driving the length of a football field with closed eyes. 

Never Text and Drive 

It is never a particularly good idea to tailgate and you should always maintain a safe follow distance.  

What is more, if one driver is tailgating and the car in front suddenly brakes, there will not be enough room for the trailing vehicle to stop. Ultimately, this will cause a crash.  

Rule of thumb is to stay at least three seconds of distance between vehicles, especially on the interstate. 

Nowadays, drivers are faced with a plethora of distractions. Additionally, easy to surf radio stations, or you could lose focus while talking on the phone as well.  

Safety should always come first on congested highways and interstates. Unfortunately, there will always be thoughtless drivers.  

 
5 Safeguards for Interstate Driving 

·      Concentrate: Highway traffic can be unforeseen and will change without notice. There are many traffic rules to follow. Also, things to watch for are things like speed limit reductions, accidents, brake lights, alert signage, narrowing lanes, semi-trucks and changing traffic patterns. 

·      Do not Be Drunk, Distracted, or Drowsy: Nearly 80 percent of crashes and 65 percent of near-crashes in California involve some form of distraction. Subsequently, texting or phone use could be considered a distraction. We cannot say this enough. Put your phone up and evade other distractions while driving. If you feel tired, pull over and rest. Finally, never drink and drive. 

·      Make Sure to Follow the Posted Speed Limits: Driving aggressively, and speeding is major causes of interstate accidents. Furthermore, follow the posted speed limits and merge as soon as safely possible. This will allow for a smooth flow of traffic. 

·      Look Behind You: Collisions from behind are the most common type of interstate accidents related to bottleneck traffic. Use your mirrors to keep a good defensive space on all sides of your vehicles. Also, it is being a responsible driver when you maintain a safe following distance. 

·      Watch for Road Construction: Pay attention to road construction reports before you leave to see if there are any Interstate issues. Additionally, pay closer attention if you absolutely need to travel through road work areas. Follow directions, and slow down for road workers for yours and their safety.
