Multi-Vehicle Collision Statistics
Multi-vehicle collisions are just one type of car accident. This type of accident usually occurs when three or more cars are involved in the accident. They commonly stem from a “chain-reaction” crash, wherein one vehicle will bump into another, causing it to crash into other cars on the roadway potentially. Every year millions of people are injured in automobile accidents on roads across the United States, while tens of thousands of drivers and passengers lose their lives each year due to crashes.
According to the United States Department of Transportation’s Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS), there were 33,654 fatal vehicle crashes in 2018, which caused 36,560 deaths. These types of crashes are commonly caused by drunk driving, speeding, and distracted driving.
