Sideswipe Collisions in Mississippi
A sideswipe accident is a kind of auto accident where the sides of two motor vehicles traveling in the same direction make contact. In many cases, the foremost cause of a sideswipe accident is drivers attempting to merge or change lanes when another car is too close for them to safely do so. Other causes of side-wipe accidents include issues with the vehicle’s tires and drivers who are intoxicated.
Although every kind of auto accident is capable of inflicting serious injuries, and in many cases, death, complied data shows that sideswipe and side-impact accidents can be extremely dangerous.
