Texas Car Accidents
Texas currently has some of the highest crash rates in the country. The rate of car wrecks that occur in Texas has risen about 15% over the last year. In 2021, approximately 20,000 individuals were seriously injured in automobile accidents in Houston alone. Reports show that one person loses their life in a car accident approximately once every two hours in Texas. Over one thousand individuals lost their lives in 2021 at or near intersections. These fatal statistics lead Texas down the road of not having a single deathless day in over a year.
Driving while intoxicated and distracted driving are two top reasons road fatalities occur in Texas. An accident occurs approximately once every two minutes, resulting in an injury occurring once every two minutes and twelve seconds. Drivers are encouraged to minimize distractions and maintain cautious speeds while on the road. Drivers and passengers should wear their seatbelts every time they attempt to operate a motor vehicle.
