One-car accident claims five lives

Jan 26, 2011

Fatal car accidents are one of many reasons people should own life insurance.

Sad news hit the Florida area recently, as the Post Chronicle reported that five members of the same family died in a one-car accident.

The Florida Highway Patrol told the paper that their SUV swerved off the road and plowed into several trees before rolling on its side. Only the driver and front passenger were wearing their seat belts, and several of the others were ejected from the car. Four people in the vehicle managed to survive the tragic accident, but two of the children were listed in critical condition at the hospital, says the report.

For those individuals that were spared from death, should consider themselves fortunate, but for anyone who dies suddenly, life insurance is needed not during one’s life but after. It provides monetary stability when someone is alive and needs medical treatment to be handled as well as when someone dies, whereas the insurance money can be used for family objectives like funeral costs.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration statistics show that an estimated 33,963 people died in motor vehicle traffic crashes in 2009.
