Fatal Car Accidents in South Carolina
Fatal accidents take the lives of countless people across our state every year. The unfortunate truth is that many of the crashes that take place are completely preventable.
Common factors in many fatal crashes here in South Carolina include:
- Aggressive Driving: This includes behaviors such as speeding, tailgating, weaving in and out of traffic, and road rage. Aggressive drivers are more likely to lose control of their vehicles and cause serious crashes that ultimately take the lives of innocent people.
- Weather Conditions: Rain, snow, ice, fog, and heavy winds can reduce visibility and road traction, making it difficult to drive safely. Drivers may struggle to adapt to changing weather conditions, which can lead to fatal collisions.
- Fatigue and Drowsy Driving: Driving while tired or drowsy can impair a driver’s alertness, reaction time, and decision-making abilities. Falling asleep at the wheel will can result in catastrophic accidents, especially on highways where vehicles travel at high speeds.
