Car crashes and collisions can happen anywhere, and when they do, they can result in severe and potentially life threatening injuries. While a crash can occur because of road and weather conditions, one of the major reasons behind most car accidents and injuries is driver error and reckless driving behaviors. While you may not be able to control the behavior of other drivers, knowing the real causes of most accidents and what to be on the lookout for when you are on the road can help protect you and your loved ones.
According to the latest statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), over 30,000 people are killed in fatal car accidents each year in the United States, while more than two million others suffer serious injuries as a result of these accidents.
