The Fayetteville Police Department feels that speed may have been the main factor in the car accident. When a driver is speeding, it is easy for them to lose control of their car. This can lead to the driver crossing in to oncoming lanes and causing a head-on collision. Head-on collisions come on suddenly and can be fatal. As a driver, it is imperative that you follow posted speed limits; it may save your life.
