    Car accident claims in Barnet


    Every year, black ice is the underlying cause of several car accident claims in Barnet. It may have been a contributing factor to the accident that happened on the Barnet Road at 6:40 AM on 13 November 2014.

    SUV skids and spins at traffic lights on the Barnet Road

    The incident involved two SUV’s; one which was stationary at a set of traffic lights, near the entrance to theme park, and the other which was approaching the lights from the opposite direction (eastbound). As the eastbound SUV braked to stop at the lights, it came into contact with the road median which caused the vehicle to slew around 90°. The rear section of the eastbound SUV collided with driver’s side of the driving of the stationary SUV, causing injuries to its driver.

    Drivers and  front seat passenger taken to the Royal Columbian Hospital

    The crash caused severe damage to the eastbound SUV, writing it off and making it necessary for the Fire Brigade who had been called to the scene to have to cut the two men free who were sat in the driver and front passenger seats. The driver sustained life-threatening injuries

    The front seat passenger was also seriously injured although his injuries were not life threatening. Both men were rushed to the Royal Columbian Hospital. The driver of the stationary westbound SUV was also injured, although the severity of his injuries is not as yet known. He too was taken to the same hospital.

    Black ice may have been the culprit

    It turns out that there had been another accident at the same spot just one hour before, when a car skidded off the road and flipped over. The car’s airbags deployed and the female driver escaped without injury. She told the police that her car had lost traction with the road, a statement which was later corroborated by witnesses. The police said that conditions were conducive to black ice being formed, but that is yet to be proven. If it is proven, the incident may add to the number of car accident claims in Barnet that are caused every year by black ice.
