New Mexico Car Crashes
Approximately 20,000 people are hurt in auto accidents throughout New Mexico every year. Across the United States, more than 4 million people per year suffer injuries so severe they end up in the hospital. Being injured in a car crash can be painful and scary, not to mention overwhelming and stressful.
Information provided by the New Mexico Department of Transportation states that almost 400 fatalities happened because of car wrecks in New Mexico in 2018. Car wrecks happen for many different reasons, however, most auto collisions reported in the United States happen due to driver negligence. Most of the severe injuries and fatalities that happen in the United States are due to car accidents.
Driver negligence causes 9 out of 10 auto collisions in the United States. Driver distraction, fatigue, intoxication, and speeding are four leading types of driver negligence that cause millions of car crashes per year. It is important to remain awake, alert, aware, and sober while operating a moving vehicle. The reality of the situation is that riding in a car can be dangerous when you aren’t mindful of your own safety and that of those around you.
