Fatal Car Accidents in South Carolina
Fatal motor vehicle accidents in South Carolina are the cause of more than a thousand deaths every year. Unfortunately, there are many accidents that are completely preventable. Negligent and reckless drivers continue to cause severe harm to others. Leading factors in many of the fatal collisions across our state include:
- Reckless driving: when drivers switch between lanes quickly, tailgate, or drive aggressively, they place the lives of innocent people at risk.
- Fatigue: when drivers are too tired to operate their vehicle, there is a significant chance that they may drift into another lane and crash into another vehicle.
- Poor weather conditions: inclement weather conditions can contribute to accidents on our roads. We see many accidents take place as a result of heavy rain and foggy road conditions.
- Running red lights: running red lights and intersections place the lives of innocent people at risk. Unfortunately, these accidents are reported far too often.
