Mississippi Car Accidents

Driver speeding and intoxication are often contributing factors in fatal collisions in Mississippi. In 2016, intoxicated drivers caused around 25% of auto collisions that occurred in the Magnolia State. Intoxicated driving accidents also yielded the most fatalities that year. Intoxication and speeding are both dangerous forms of driver negligence/error, the main contributing factor to collisions in Mississippi and throughout the country.

In 2020, fatalities related to alcohol use occurred in approximately 26% of auto accidents in the United States. Approximately 75% of the victims who lost their lives were intoxicated drivers themselves. Being intoxicated usually leads to bad judgment and impaired vision, two dangerous characteristics to display while behind the wheel. Inebriated drivers usually cause accidents that can result in severe, debilitating injuries for victims or even death.
