Despite our love of cars in America, they remain dangerous to life and limb. More than 33,000 people die in car wrecks each year. At least 4,000 of these fatalities occur in accidents involving over the road trucks and tractor-trailer combinations. Another 4,000 pedestrians are killed in vehicle accidents. Many multiples of these numbers are injured, with some suffering lifetime injuries. Every state has its share of these tragic accidents.
The causes of car crashes are many: Driver inattention; excessive speed; mechanical failures; intoxicated or impaired drivers; unsafe roads; unsafe vehicles; and many other causes.
