During the early hours of Thursday, October 1st, a car crashed into a tree in Phoenix, Arizona, killing the occupant. In the car accident report, the Phoenix Police Department identified the victim as that Vaio Tsano, 19.
The incident happened at about 3 a.m. near Seventh Street and Braeburn Drive. Tsano lost control of this car and collided with the tree. Firefighters found him unresponsive and pronounced him dead at the scene.
The police believe that speed played a role in the occurrence, but they are still investigating. There is no additional information at this time.
It is not uncommon for drivers to lose control of their cars, especially when they travel over the speed limit. At other times, road conditions, sudden animal sighting, and adverse weather conditions like rain and snow cause motorists to lose control.
Drivers who lose control of their vehicles get frightened and panicked, making them make more mistakes that complicates the situation. Avoid panicking, keep a level head, think about possible options, and try to regain control of the car.
Slippery roads lead to spinning and hydroplaning, especially if it has not rained for a long time; thus, avoid braking too hard. Apply the brakes gently for a second or two, step off it, and repeat the process until the vehicle stops completely.
Avoid hitting the gas pedal when skidding or hydroplaning, and use the emergency brakes if the primary one is not functional. If skidding, try to steer in the opposite direction, and do it as gently as possible.
