Traffic signals, such as red lights, provide instructions for drivers as they try to maneuver through intersections. When drivers try to "beat the light" or fail to follow the signals of the light, accidents can occur. One recent accident on River Watch Parkway claimed the life of three children because two drivers chose to disobey the traffic signal at an intersection.
In this case, two drivers were arrested and now face charges related to the accident. The investigation into the accident revealed that both drivers involved in the accident ran the red lights, which caused the accident. One man was driving a pickup truck eastbound. The other man, who was driving the car that was occupied by three children, was turning left. The driver of the pickup truck slammed into the car.
