Phoenix Car Crashes
Car accidents happen in Arizona at an alarming rate. Approximately 160,000 vehicle collisions are reported per year in the Grand Canyon State. Over 55,000 people sustain injuries in these crashes annually, while more than 1,000 lose their lives. Across the United States, millions of car crashes are reported per year. About 3 million people are injured per year in auto accidents in the US. Approximately 40,000 people lose their lives in these wrecks.
In the past decade, the number of car crashes has been steadily increasing in the United States and throughout the state of Arizona. The reasons these wrecks happen vary, however, the most common reason car crashes occur in the US is driver negligence. Drivers continue to drive while intoxicated, distracted, and fatigued at alarming rates. This is dangerous and selfish. Negligent drivers put themselves and everyone they encounter on the road at serious risk for severe injuries and even death.
