In 2014, Tracy Morgan was involved in a car accident that left him seriously injured. Driver fatigue was cited as a factor in that accident, and it is believed that drowsy driving may be just as unsafe as drunk driving. Drivers who sleep less than six hours per night or who snore may be at a higher risk of falling asleep behind the wheel.
On July 25, a multi-vehicle collision claimed the life of one person and injured two others when a car collided with an ambulance approximately 50 miles southwest of Queens in New Brunswick, New Jersey. The ambulance was carrying two emergency medical technicians to the scene of a crash in East Brunswick when the deadly incident occurred.
