New York Car Crashes
Every year, hundreds of people lose their lives in fatal auto crashes in New York. On average, approximately 2 of every 100,000 residents in New York are killed due to an auto crash. These wrecks are usually preventable, however, they continue to happen on a regular basis and seriously alter the lives of involved parties.
Regardless of how safe drivers are while they’re on the road, it is impossible to predict the behavior of other motorists. The majority of car crashes that happen in the United States are the result of driver negligence. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that over 90% of the car wrecks reported in the United States are due to the actions of distracted, fatigued, or intoxicated drivers.
