Fatal Multi-Vehicle Collision Statistics
Getting into a car accident can leave you with serious, even permanent, injuries. Every driver should drive cautiously to avoid this situation. Unfortunately, car accidents have become far too common in the United States. According to the Fatality Analysis System (FARS) of the United States Department of Transport, 33,654 fatal car crashes occurred in 2018, resulting in 36,560 deaths.
There are several ways how traffic collisions occur. In this case, a multi-vehicle collision happened. When three or more vehicles are involved in a traffic crash, it’s considered a multi-vehicle collision. A chain-reaction collision usually causes this type of accident, wherein one vehicle crashes into another, leading to the other vehicle possibly colliding with another car on the road.
Inattentive drivers are to blame for a large number of fatal collisions that occur on the roads. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there were nine fatal car accidents in the city in 2019 (NHTSA).
