Texas Car Crashes

Every year, thousands of people are injured in auto accidents throughout the state of Texas. Texas is among the top three states in the nation with the most car accidents reported per year, along with Florida and California. These wrecks happen for multiple reasons, however, the leading cause of car crashes in Texas and throughout the United States is currently distracted driving. Distracted driving is a dangerous form of driver negligence that may seem harmless, however, it is anything but that.
