Fatal Multi-Vehicle Collision Statistics

A multi-vehicle accident occurs when three or more cars collide on the road. When two vehicles collide, it’s called a “chain reaction” and could lead to yet another collision with other cars on the road. Car accidents can be life-changing and fatal. Because car accidents are so common in our lives, most drivers do not realize just how dangerous they can be if they don’t drive carefully.

Being in a car accident can be incredibly traumatic for the people involved as well as their families. Twenty-nine people lost their lives in traffic accidents in 2019 in Oakland, according to city statistics on deadly collisions. In 2018, there were 26 fatal car accidents in the city. This series of crashes resulted in the deaths of 27 people.

Human error is the primary factor in the vast majority of car accidents, according to the data. Distracted driving, speeding, driving under the influence, reckless driving, driving in bad weather, driving the wrong way, and failing to obey traffic laws are all examples of reckless driving.
