Police Believe Crash May Be Linked to Wearing Mask While Driving
A NJ police department believes that a driver wearing an N95 mask while driving may have caused an accident.
Weeks ago, Governor Cuomo announced an executive order that we must all wear masks in places and scenarios where we cannot practice social distancing properly. Many states have followed suite and and are also regulating masks. To help stop the spread of the coronavirus you should absolutely wear masks or face coverings in essential businesses like grocery stores, hospitals, gas stations and public transit systems but there a few places that may not require them for your safety. One example could be in your car with no passengers according to some police officials.
According to a post from the Lincoln Park Police's Facebook page, they responded to a crash they believe may have been caused by the driver wearing an N95 mask for too long causing them to pass out. Though they can't rule out a medical condition the post states that no signs of drug or alcohol use was uncovered.
