Mississippi Car Accidents

Wayne County, MS - Fatal Two-Car Accident on Hwy 84

In Mississippi, the majority of car accidents are caused by driver negligence. In one recent year, tens of thousands of accidents were caused by driver destruction in Mississippi alone. The state sees approximately 60,000 reported car accidents per year, the majority of which are caused by things like driver inattention, and driver intoxication. Throughout the United States, driver distraction has become the most prevalent cause of car crashes across the nation. In fact, over 400,000 vehicle accidents are reported per year caused by the actions of distracted drivers.

The most common form of driver distraction comes in the form of cell phone use. Drivers who think that it is OK to look down at their cell phones for even five seconds put themselves and everyone else at risk for serious injuries or even death. Looking at your cell phone for five seconds while traveling at 55 mph is the same as driving the length of a football field with your eyes closed. This is extremely dangerous and can even be deadly for you and everyone else involved.
