There are many ways to prove liability in an auto accident. One of the most common ways to prove liability is to show that the other driver violated a traffic law. One of the most basic road rules is that drivers are supposed to leave enough room between themselves and the car in front of them that they will not run into the other car should it make a sudden stop. Nevertheless, rear end accidents remain one of the most common types of car accidents.
The Madison County Sheriff's Department recently arrested a 24-year-old Alton woman on suspicion of drunk driving after she crashed into another vehicle. According to the sheriff's deputy that responded to the scene of the accident, the car crash occurred when the driver ran into the rear end of another vehicle that was stopped in traffic. According to reports, the automobile crash took place in the 5000 block of Humbert Road in Alton near Roach Road.
