Fatal Multi-Vehicle Crash 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. These types of crashes are commonly caused by drunk driving, speeding, and distracted driving.
Car accident related-deaths across the country have been increasing at an alarming rate. 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. Car accidents can often lead to irreversible and sometimes fatal consequences. All drivers are encouraged to practice responsible driving to avoid this.
