Fatal T-Bone Crashes in Mississippi
Common sense tells us that crashing into the side of a motor vehicle is incredibly dangerous. It is statistically more probable that fatalities and lasting injuries would ensue when drivers of smaller, lighter motorbikes and compact automobiles refuse to give the right of way to heavy rigs, city buses, and tour buses. The National Highway Traffic Security Administration (NHTSA) estimates that 8,000 individuals per year nationwide perish in T-bone collisions.
