Fatal Car Accidents in South Carolina
Fatal car crashes can be incredibly devastating. The unfortunate truth is that there are many instances where people lose their lives as a result of preventable crashes. When drivers do not operate their vehicles safely and in a responsible manner, it can have deadly consequences. Unfortunately, there are many common factors that contribute to the vehicle collisions reported in our state every year. Some of the most common include:
- Weather Conditions: Inclement weather conditions can reduce visibility and traction, leading to deadly situations.
- Fatigue: Driving while tired or drowsy diminishes alertness and reaction time, contributing to fatal crashes.
- Running Red Lights/Stop Signs: Disregarding traffic signals while traveling through intersections increases the likelihood of traffic fatalities.
