Car accidents are sometimes life-altering and traumatic. But, unfortunately, because of how universal cars are to our lives, drivers often forget just how dangerous they can become and that severe and even deadly car crashes can occur. There are several reasons why car accidents occur. The most common reasons are distracted driving, drunk driving, and driver over-fatigue.
