Multi-Vehicle Collision Statistics

With a population of around 40 million people, it’s no surprise that California is an accident-prone state. Driving anywhere in California is risky. The majority of collisions, however, are preventable. 94% of all accidents are attributable to human error. Multi-vehicle collisions are commonly caused by drunk driving, speeding, reckless and distracted driving.

Multi-vehicle collisions can result in extreme vehicular damage and death. A car accident is classified as a multi-vehicle collision when three or more vehicles are involved. This type of car accident is commonly caused by a “chain reaction,” when one car bumps into another, which causes the other to hit the next vehicle. In this case, the multi-vehicle collision was triggered by a woman trying to avoid authorities because she was suspected of driving while under the influence.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), approximately 10,000 people are killed annually due to DUI accidents. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention information, around 18% of all fatal motor accidents involve drugs and alcohol. Intoxicated drivers put innocent people — and themselves — at severe and unacceptable risk.
