In 2013, the North Carolina-Virginia border was closed for hours following a massive chain of accidents. Police later reported that 17 different collisions involved 95 cars & trucks. The wrecks left 3 people dead & more than two dozen injured - many of them seriously.
The cause of the accidents was people driving into a thick fog that descended over the Interstate that Sunday afternoon. A police spokesman said, “Visibility at the time this accident occurred was down to about one hundred feet or less.”
As people continued to drive blindly forward, they could not see the danger that was just ahead until it was too late. Prudence reminds us to be on guard for danger.
Because of the way our minds work, we often tend to disregard what may happen in the future simply because it hasn’t happened yet.
