In Westminster early on Monday morning, all lanes of North Federal Boulevard were closed starting at 74th Avenue, due to a fatal single-car accident. The accident happened around 5:40 a.m. and resulted in one death. Traffic was backed up due to the shut down, which lasted about 3 hours.
The cause of the accident is currently being investigated and the name of the person who passed away will be released once the family has been contacted.
Common Causes of Single-Car Accidents
Car accidents involving only one vehicle make up about a fifth of all car accidents, and kill more than 8,000 people every year. The causes of these types of accidents can vary greatly, and unlike what many people assume, these types of accidents aren’t always the fault of the driver.
There are all types of factors that may play a role in causing a single-car accident, including faulty tires or other defective vehicle parts, and also dangerous environmental conditions or road defects. An investigation will need to be done into the circumstances surrounding any accident in order to determine what really happened.
