Road traffic accidents can leave a person with several injuries spanning from just light cuts and bruises to more serious injuries like whiplash and broken bones, and then in the worse cases people may die.
The emergency services have to deal with various road traffic accidents on a daily basis. Some of these are of course accidents as the term is meant to be used and then others sadly are because of a driver driving without due care and attention. Some of the worst of these can be driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol or using a mobile phone whilst in control of a vehicle.
