Mississippi Car Crashes
Car accidents in Mississippi happen all the time. The number of people injured in car wrecks in the Magnolia State is around 55,000 per year. More than 125,000 car crashes happen in Mississippi every year, taking the lives of over 1,000 people annually. These wrecks can take place for a plethora of different reasons, including driver negligence, vehicle problems, and bad weather.
Currently, driver negligence is the leading cause of car crashes in the United States and throughout Mississippi. In Mississippi, distracted driving is the main cause of serious car crashes that result in injuries and death. In fact, distracted driving is the most common cause of injury accidents throughout the United States. Every year, more than 3,000 people lose their lives due to distracted driving collisions.
Driver negligence has become a prevalent and dangerous issue in the United States. Since the advent of hand-held technology like smartphones, people have more reason to be distracted while behind the wheel than ever. Looking at your phone for five seconds while traveling 55 miles per hour is the same as driving the length of an entire football field with your eyes closed. This is extremely dangerous and can result in severe injuries and fatalities.
