Mississippi Car Wrecks
Statistics reveal that auto collisions in Mississippi happen more than 100,000 times per year. These accidents injure over 60,000 people and take the lives of more than 1,000 individuals per year. Auto collisions can happen for a multitude of reasons, including mechanical malfunctions, inclement weather, and driver error/negligence. Currently, the leading cause of auto accidents in the United States is speeding.
In 2021, the top three causes of auto collisions were distracted driving, improper turning, and speeding. These three forms of driver negligence caused numerous collisions in Mississippi in 2021. Serious car wrecks result from driver negligence, as well as serious or even debilitating injuries for those involved.
