Multi-Vehicle Collision Statistics

In the United States, motor vehicle accidents are the most frequent cause of personal injuries. Almost two million people are injured in motor vehicle crashes each year. Over 200,000 of them are in California alone. As the fourth most populous region in the state, Riverside County houses over 2,000,000 residents and can be seen as one of the most dangerous to drive in.

In 2017, Riverside alone reported 2,119 injuries and deaths from motor vehicle accidents on surface streets such as Jurupa Ave., Wells Ave., Pierce St and more commonly on surrounding highways like the 91, 215, and the 60.

These tragedies are only made worse because most were avoidable; almost 80 percent of all traffic collisions result from distracted driving behavior.

Multi-vehicle accidents are only one type of traffic accident. When three or more cars are involved in a collision, this sort of accident occurs. They are frequently caused by a “chain-reaction” crash, in which one vehicle collides with another, potentially causing it to collide with additional cars on the road.

These accidents commonly occur due to reckless drivers, speeding, drunk drivers, and distracted drivers.
