Common winter weather accidents include:
- Spinouts: Snowy or icy road conditions can often result in tire spinouts, especially if the tires are worn down or not designed for wintery conditions.
- Rear-End Collisions: During hazardous weather conditions, it is always advisable to keep a safe distance from the vehicle in front of you. Failure to do so can result in a rear-end crash.
- Head-On Collisions: When the roads are slippery, you should always drive at a safe speed. It doesn't take much to lose control and skid into oncoming traffic.
- T-bone Accidents: Speeding or icy downhill conditions at an intersection can cause a driver's vehicle to skid, often resulting in a T-bone or broadside accident.
What to do after a winter weather accident
