Mississippi Fatal Car Crashes
Deadly car crashes happen daily across Mississippi. Hundreds are killed in vehicle collisions in the state each year, and the state has the highest vehicle fatality rate in the country. Speeding and drunk driving are significant contributors to fatal collisions reported annually in Mississippi. Statistics reveal that nearly 22% of drivers in the state fail to wear seatbelts while behind the wheel, greatly increasing the risk of being seriously injured in a crash.
