Chain-Reaction Accident Causes Armored Car to Flip

Motorists are always expected to make safe turns and maneuvers to avoid hitting or being hit by other vehicles. They should keep in mind that they can be held accountable for any damage or injury that they cause to other motorists during an accident.

Recently, an armored vehicle carrying an undisclosed amount of money flipped to its side as it tried to avoid hitting another vehicle.

It is reported that at least six patrol cars surrounded the vehicle after it flipped on its side and ended at the center divider of Whittier Boulevard.

The chain accident occurred after a vehicle suddenly pulled out from an establishment causing the driver of an approaching car to swerve into the lane of the armored car. The driver failed to control the vehicle as it swerved and flipped on its side.

Thankfully, no one was injured in the accident. Authorities are still trying to locate the driver of the vehicle that started the chain reaction as he fled the scene before authorities were able to question him.
