Fatal Car Accidents in California
Fatal accidents are the cause of thousands of deaths in California every year. Even though there are several laws in place across the Golden State to protect motorists, we continue to see innocent people lose their lives as a result of drivers who fail to operate their vehicles with care and consideration for others.
Unfortunately, many of the accidents that take place on our roadways are preventable. A significant number of these accidents occur at intersections. Some of the leading factors that contribute to our high rate of fatal collisions include:
- Failing to Yield: When drivers do not yield to other vehicles at intersections, they run the risk of crashing into them and causing severe harm to others around.
- Running Red Lights: When drivers fail to stop at red lights or stop signs at intersections, they can crash into other vehicles that have the right-of-way to proceed through.
- Speeding: When drivers are traveling too fast through intersections, they may not be able to stop in time to avoid striking other vehicles. This is particularly true if the lights change or they do not see a stop sign while approaching.
