Multi-Vehicle Car Accident Statistics
Every year millions of people are injured in automobile accidents on roads across the United States.
Multi-vehicle collisions usually involve three or more vehicles. A “chain-reaction commonly causes this type of accident,” wherein one car will bump into another, which will cause the other vehicle to potentially crash into another one.
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.
Car accidents are sometimes life-altering and traumatic. 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. Car accidents happen because some drivers sometimes drive recklessly, speed, get behind the wheel under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or drive distracted.
