Multi-Vehicle Collision Statistics

Los Angeles is one of the most densely populated cities in the country, with a whopping 3.96 million residents as of 2019. It’s no surprise that the traffic congestion in the city is getting worse.

Los Angeles was also ranked the fifth most congested city in the United States last 2020 despite the COVID pandemic.

So it’s no surprise that car accidents happen throughout the county. In this case, a multi-vehicle collision occurred. Multi-vehicle collisions happen when three or more vehicles are involved in the crash.

Multi-vehicle accidents are more likely to occur when weather conditions such as fog, rain, or snow decrease road visibility. As a result, drivers must use extreme caution and vigilance. Drivers may be unaware of how hazardous the road conditions are.

According to a recent NHTSA research, over 13,000 individuals die each year in multi-vehicle events involving passenger vehicles, accounting for more than 40% of all motor vehicle fatalities.

In many multi-car accidents, drivers may not have much time to avoid colliding with automobiles in front of them. Most panicked drivers hit the brakes too late, drifting into other lanes and skidding.
