Fatal Car Accidents in Mississippi
Mississippi has one of the highest rates of fatal car accidents in the country, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. As a result, residents of the state are more likely to be in a car accident and suffer serious injuries. According to statistics, around 22% of Mississippi drivers do not wear seat belts, and traffic collisions are becoming more serious. Automobile collisions are now the leading cause of serious injury and death in the state.
