An early morning crash killed the driver and closed down parts of Rooney Road and the Alameda Parkway for several hours today. 9 News has reported that Lakewood Police investigators are “working to identify the driver” as well as to find the cause of the fatal accident. Witnesses near the scene “told investigators they saw the car going very fast before it went off the road.” The crash caused traffic backups well into the morning commute.
Fatal car accidents are life changing events. They leave friends and loved ones with more questions than answers. Many deadly car crashes happen when the sun has gone done. Drivers who are tired or who have trouble with their vision in the dark are especially vulnerable to nighttime accidents. It is imperative for drivers to be properly rested and to take care of vision problems they may be suffering from.
