Mississippi Auto Collisions
Car accidents occur in the state of Mississippi all the time. Per year, the state sees over 100,000 vehicle collisions that injure more than 50,000 people. Of these wrecks, over 1,000 individuals lose their lives.
Throughout the United States, car crashes are the leading cause of death for individuals ages 15-20. Auto accidents are also among the top ten leading causes of death throughout the country. This is most likely due to the rising prevalence of driver negligence in the country. Driver negligence causes over 90% of the car crashes reported in the US, meaning that millions of auto collisions happen due to the actions of negligent drivers every year, and tens of thousands of people lose their lives due to these wrecks.
Driver distraction is currently the most commonly seen type of driver negligence in the US. It causes over 400,000 auto accidents per year and takes the lives of roughly 3,000 people. Other common forms of driver negligence include drunk driving, speeding, and driver fatigue.
