Reportedly, Maurice Chevalier is responsible for one of the most-cited quips about aging: “Old age isn’t so bad when you consider the alternative.” There is immense value in age and our oldest community members have much to offer and much to teach. However, there are also a number of concerns raised as growing numbers join the 65+ set. Our Santa Rosa injury lawyer understands that concerns over the safety of older drivers will become increasingly important in the coming years, but that doesn’t alter the fact that this is a difficult and sensitive topic for all involved.
Sunday Morning Crash Seriously Injures Elderly Santa Rosa Driver
On Sunday morning, a crash in Rincon Valley left an 85-year-old driver seriously injured according to a report in the Press Democrat. Police believe the elderly Santa Rosa woman was at a stop sign on Benicia Drive when she turned her Prius left onto Montecito Boulevard and into the path of an oncoming pickup truck. Police believe the truck driver had the right-of-way. They do not believe that alcohol or speed factored into the collision.
