Mississippi Car Wrecks
The number of serious injuries resulting from car accidents in Mississippi saw a drastic increase in 2020 compared to previous years. From 2014 to 2018, the annual number of injuries remained under 1,000, with a low of 633 in 2014 and a high of 781 in 2016. However, in 2019, the numbers rose to 1,579 and then more than doubled to 3,603 in 2020. This trend indicates a growing issue with serious injuries from car accidents in the state.
