Two-Vehicle Collision Statistics
Car accidents are one of the leading factors of injury deaths in California. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), over 3,304 recorded fatal car accidents in California in 2017. There are several reasons why car accidents occur. The most common reasons are distracted driving, drunk driving, and driver over-fatigue.
The majority of car accidents can be attributed to human error. Car accidents are often preventable as long as motorists practice safe driving. Unfortunately, this is not the case all the time. Attention to the road, competence behind the wheel, and proper vehicle maintenance can reduce the odds of getting into a collision.
