Albuquerque, NM - Auto Collision Results in Injuries on I-40 near 12th St

Car crashes happen constantly in the United States and throughout New Mexico. In fact, every single day, more than 17,000 car wrecks are reported in the United States. These accidents injure over 7,500 daily and take the lives of about 100 per day. This is alarming, especially when we consider how and why these crashes occur. 

Throughout the last decade or so, car crashes have happened for numerous reasons throughout the US. However, one of the main causes of auto collisions throughout the country has become driver negligence, mostly due to the use of smartphones and other handheld technology. As our society learns to navigate our universal addiction to screens, we continuously put ourselves and others at risk of serious injury or death every time we choose to look at one while behind the wheel.
