High-Speed Crashes in New Mexico
Vehicle fatalities have been on the rise in the United States for many years. A recent study published by the National Transportation Safety Board found that this rise in deadly car accidents was attributable to speeding drivers. Across the country, speeding was a factor in 112,580 reported roadway fatalities from 2005 to 2014, accounting for 31% of total traffic deaths during the time period.
The injuries sustained in a high-speed crash are often much more severe than a typical collision. The force of impact can be devastating for crash victims. The study published by the NTSB found that pedestrians who are struck by a vehicle traveling 30 miles per hour had a 60% chance of survival, compared to a pedestrian hit by at 40 mph with a survival rate of 40%.
