Common Fatal Car Accident Factors
Many people think it is unlikely that they will be involved in a serious car accident. While it is true that the chances are low that you will be involved in a crash on any given commute or trip to a grocery store, auto accidents happen frequently and without warning. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that more than 3,000 traffic fatalities take place in California every year. In the city of Paradise alone, there have been more than 30 auto accident deaths over the past ten years. While accidents can’t always be avoided, drivers should be aware of some of the accident factors that commonly cause fatal collisions.
