Mississippi Car Wrecks

Mississippi sees tens of thousands of traffic accidents each and every year that injure thousands and end the lives of hundreds. Sadly, most of these wrecks happen because of drivers who allow themselves to operate their vehicles under the influence of alcohol, while distracted, or while traveling at unsafe speeds. Driver fatigue is also another common form of driver negligence displayed among American drivers and those in Mississippi.
