Last weekend, according to the Thousand Oaks Acorn, heavy rain was the cause of several Ventura County car accidents and injuries. One particular Thousand Oaks car accident occurred on the Northbound 23 freeway, wherein a car was turned over on its side.
The occupants of the vehicles in that car accident in Thousand Oaks were taken to Los Robles Hospital. The Acorn reports that more rain is expected to fall this weekend and that drivers should take extra precaution on the roads.
Some tips for driving in the rain, from Edmunds.com, include allowing for more travel time so you can drive slower, using your headlights, giving extra distance to any buses or trucks, and not to use cruise control.
These extra precautions can be key in avoiding a rain accident in Thousand Oaks and throughout California.
