    True or false? A driver passed out at the wheel and crashed into me. It’s surely their fault?


    This is not the most common car accident but it does happen. There could be a multitude of reasons why the driver has passed out, from being very tired to having an underlying illness. If this happens and the car then causes a road traffic accident then most of the time this would be the driver’s fault.

    What occasions would this car collision not be the driver’s fault?

    There are very few reasons why this type of car crash would not be the passed out driver’s fault. One reason the car collision could be considered to not be the driver’s fault is if the car he or she crashed into was on the wrong side of the road as the collision may not have happened had they been on their side.

    What should I do if I see a driver pass out ahead of me?

    If you see a driver pass out, put your hazards on to warn drivers around you of the potential hazard, keep a safe distance from the car and call an ambulance and the police.  If you know first aid you could attend the car collision to check the driver as he or she could be in a critical state which you may be able to help if you have medical knowledge.

    Never put yourself in danger, if there is any sign of smoke from the road traffic accident or if you can see petrol leaking, keep a safe distance, call the fire brigade and do not try to approach as you could sustain an injury much worse than a simple car crash.

    If you have had a car collision within the last three years that wasn’t your fault you may be able to make a claim.
