Multi-Vehicle Collision Statistics
With a population of around 40 million people, it’s no surprise that California is a hotspot for car accidents. The California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) reports that there were 3,563 car accident fatalities throughout the state in 2018 alone. Thousands of people must deal with grief and sudden loss in the wake of California’s deadly accidents.
In this case, a multi-vehicle collision occurred. When three or more vehicles are involved in a collision, the accident is considered a “multi-vehicle” collision. A “chain reaction commonly causes this type of accident,” wherein one car will bump into another, which will cause the other vehicle to crash into another one potentially. These accidents commonly occur due to reckless drivers, speeding, drunk drivers, and distracted drivers.
