Fatal Multi-Vehicle Collision Statistics

When three or more vehicles collide on the road, this is considered a multi-vehicle collision. They are frequently caused by a “chain-reaction” crash, in which one vehicle collides with another, potentially causing it to collide with additional cars on the road. Traffic collisions can be life-changing and catastrophic. Drivers usually fail to recognize how dangerous automobiles can become and how easily severe and even fatal car accidents can occur because they have become so common in our lives.

Millions of people are injured every year, and tens of thousands of drivers and passengers are killed in car accidents on American highways. According to the United States Department of Transportation’s Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS), 33,654 fatal automobile crashes occurred in 2018, resulting in 36,560 deaths. In this case, the collision started because the Chevrolet Tahoe broadsided the Mazda 3. Broadside crashes, or sometimes referred to as “T-bone collisions,” occur when a car is hit on the side by the front or rear of another motor vehicle.

Broadside accidents can often result in life-threatening injuries. The best way to avoid this type of accident is to be vigilant behind the wheel. Human error is the most common cause of T-bone accidents, and if drivers keep their attention on the road, it can significantly decrease their chances of getting involved in a broadside collision.
