Vehicle Accidents in South Carolina
Inexperienced drivers often cause car accidents as a result of poor driving techniques. Incredibly often, careless driving results in tragic car accidents in South Carolina. Speeding, failing to yield to oncoming traffic, and tailgating are all examples of careless driving. Alcohol abuse is a significant problem in the state. In our Palmetto State, drunk driving claims hundreds of lives annually.
Utilizing annual data gathered, the South Carolina Department of Public Safety creates fact books. It doesn’t take much research to reach the conclusion that there are too many accidents on South Carolina’s roads each year. Injuries were caused by over 38,000 accidents in the state in 2018.
“Other injuries” was the classification for the remaining collisions. 58,053 injuries were recorded on South Carolina’s roadways in 2018, down from nearly 60,500 the year before.
Driver error was to blame for almost 95% of crashes that resulted in injuries. Excessive speed was noted as a contributing cause in 11,121 of the 38,138 nonfatal injury cases. In 8,845 of these incidents, there was a failure to surrender the right-of-way. About half of crashes that result in injuries are caused by these two causes. 218 of the 969 fatal crashes were caused by driving too fast, while 91, or around 32 percent, were caused by failing to yield.
