Of these wrecks, there were more than 38,000 deaths, and over 2.74 million individuals sustained injuries.
Numerous factors may contribute to car crashes, including distracted driving, driver error, intoxicated driving, vehicle problems, and road conditions. Unfortunately, many crashes are preventable. There are actions one can take to reduce the chance of becoming injured in an accident, such as following the rules of the road, paying attention while driving, and using defensive driving tactics.
