New Mexico Car Accidents

 Albuquerque, NM - Victims Injured in Traffic Collision on 4th St New Mexico is home to millions of people who drive and ride in vehicles, so it is no surprise that tens of thousands of people suffer injuries in car crashes every year in the Land of Enchantment. The United States sees over 6 million car accidents per year that end in injuries for about 3 million people and take the lives of tens of thousands. In New Mexico, tens of thousands sustain injuries, and hundreds lose their lives every year because of auto collisions.

For example, more than 400,000 car crashes happen each and every year due to the actions of drivers who are distracted, mostly by their cell phones. Additionally, speeding causes over 11,000 deaths annually in the United States.
