Mississippi Car Crashes
In Mississippi, auto accidents are common. Each year, more than 100,000 car wrecks are reported in the Magnolia State that injure over 55,000 people. Additionally, over 1,000 individuals are killed in car crashes annually in Mississippi.
Throughout the United States, there are more than 6 million vehicle collisions reported per year. On average, about 4 million people are hurt in these accidents per year, and close to 40,000 are killed. Car wrecks take more lives than the HIV/AIDS virus, according to recent statistics concerning car wrecks in the United States.
Car wrecks occur for numerous reasons. Problematic vehicles, bad weather, and driver error/negligence are all common causes of auto accidents. Right now, in the United States, driver negligence causes more auto accidents than both inclement weather and defective vehicles combined. More than 95% of American traffic collisions are the result of driver negligence. Drivers who are distracted, drunk, high, drowsy, or speeding cause millions of car accidents each year in the United States.
