Beasley Allen attorney Chris Glover discusses how fatigued driving caused a UA student’s death

Following the settlement reached in the case involving Natalie Baine, a University of Alabama student who died from injuries sustained in a traffic crash, Beasley Allen attorney Chris Glover speaks to the Montgomery Advertiser regarding the dangers of fatigued driving and how it related to his case’s recent settlement.
According to the lawsuit, the driver of the vehicle during the fatal three-vehicle crash had been drinking during the course of several days before the accident and had also not been sleeping very much. This resulted in the condition best known as fatigued driving or drowsy driving, which significantly increases the likelihood of a crash. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), each year crashes involving sleepy drivers take the lives of approximately 1,500 individuals, leaving 71,000 injured.

Glover hopes that accidents such as Baine’s serve as an example of why it is important to ensure the driver of a motor vehicle is well-rested and prepared to take on the roadways.
