Redding Auto Accident Statistics
I’m Ed Smith, a Redding auto accident lawyer. Beautiful views of nearby forests, rivers, and mountains can make Redding feel like a rural location that is far away from the bustle of a major city. However, not only is Redding located on one of the largest highways in the United States, but it is also the most populated Californian city north of Sacramento. These two facts together mean that Redding sees a fair amount of highway and city street traffic every day. Unfortunately, wherever there is vehicle traffic, there is the risk for dangerous auto accidents.
Redding has been the site of thousands of traumatic car accidents over the past decade. These accidents have resulted in nearly 6,000 injuries and 88 deaths. However, knowing about how, when, and where these accidents take place can help area drivers stay safe and avoid being involved in a crash themselves.
