Sideswipe Car Accidents 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. Even though every kind of car 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.
In many instances, the main cause of a sideswipe crash is drivers trying to change lanes or merge when another vehicle is too close for them to do so safely. Other causes of sideswipe collisions include drivers who are intoxicated and mechanical defects with the vehicle.
