The unfortunate truth is that many of these accidents take place right here in our states. Far too often, fatal collisions are reported as a result of the negligent and careless actions of other drivers. Some of the leading factors include:

  • Distracted driving: Texting or other distractions take the driver’s attention from the road ahead, contributing to fatal accidents due to compromised focus.
  • Reckless driving: Aggressive actions while behind the wheel between travel lanes dramatically increase the risk of collisions taking place, which may result in fatalities.
  • Running red lights or stop signs: Ignoring traffic signals at intersections increases the risk of fatal crashes taking place at these locations.
