Fatal Car Accidents in California
Auto wrecks take the lives of thousands of people in California each year. Some of the leading factors and fatal collisions that we see here in California include:
- Speeding: Traveling at too high of a speed can make it difficult for a driver to maintain control of their vehicle.
- Impairment: Drivers who are intoxicated or high may not be able to maneuver their vehicle in a responsible manner.
- Distractions: Daydreaming, texting on a cell phone, or talking with passengers in a vehicle can take the attention of a driver away from the road ahead. This can have devastating consequences.
- Road rage: When drivers become angry while behind the wheel, they may not be able to make sound decisions.
