For many Southern Californians, summer is the time to head to the pool or the beach. However, it is important for parents to keep in mind that drowning is the second leading cause of unintentional, inury-related death for children under the age of nineteen.
On December 17, 2009 a young man died on a stretch of road from Orange County to Elsinore called Ortega Highway. This is one of the most dangerous roads in California because of the narrow stretches, trucks passing through the zone and dirt shoulders that are not well maintained. Mr. Moreira was travelling to Elsinore when his front right tire drifted off the pavement and onto the shoulder. Unfortunately, to move back onto the road takes a tremendous effort. If not done exactly correct, oversteer easily occurs. In this case, Mr. Moreira oversteered and in the split second of reaction, he crossed the double line, and was struck causing his death.
