My morning commute is often exciting. My two kids in the back seat keep things entertaining and energetic for my wife and I. This morning there was some additional excitement in the commute. A car rear-ended a truck on Powell Blvd. The vehicle occupants did not appear to have any catastrophic injuries. However, this is a classic rear-end crash where soft tissue and whiplash-type symptoms will arise after the adrenaline subsides. Additionally, Concussions and Mild TBI's are common with these crashes. These crashes are completely avoidable if drivers pay attention, eliminate distractions, drive at a safe distance from the car in front of them and drive at a safe speed.
