Mississippi Car Wrecks

Car wrecks can take place for numerous reasons, including mechanical problems, bad weather, and driver negligence/error. Currently, the leading cause of car crashes in the United States is speeding.
In 2021, the top three reasons car wrecks happened were improper turning, distracted driving, and speeding. These three forms of driver negligence caused numerous collisions in Mississippi in 2021. Serious car wrecks result from driver negligence, as well as serious or even debilitating injuries for those involved.
