A sneezing attack should not be disregarded by motorists while they are driving. Two fatal vehicular incidents have occurred reportedly because of a sneezing fit.
Recently, 30-year-old Laura McClendon, a single mother, was killed in Smithville, Missouri after a head-on vehicular collision with Kathleen Brady’s minivan after reportedly having a sneeze attack whilst driving.
In addition, McClendon was not wearing a seatbelt when the accident occurred. McClendon’s 1-year-old son who was also in the car had sustained life-threatening injuries and is currently in serious condition at Children’s Mercy Hospital.
McClendon had just started her new job this summer. Her friends were deeply shocked by the news.
Brady is now facing charges of careless and imprudent driving and failure to have insurance.
Another vehicular incident involving a sneezing fit killed a passenger in a car in Maryland after the vehicle crashed into a tree.
Although sneezing attacks could not be controlled at our will, Highway Patrol Sgt. Collin Stosberg says that these accidents could be potentially avoided by traveling at a speed that would not cause you to lose control.
Car Accident victims may be entitled to financial compensation for pain and suffering in addition to economic damages.
