South Carolina Car Wrecks
In 2015, 65,643 car accidents were reported on major roadways across the United States. The number of people killed in car accidents is increasing across the country, with 35,092 fatalities documented last year. This is an increase of 7.2 percent over the previous year. The number of road fatalities in the United States has just hit a 50-year high.
Untrained drivers are frequently involved in car accidents due to their lack of experience on the road. Vehicle accidents caused by careless driving are tragically common in South Carolina. Speeding, failing to yield to other cars, and simply following another vehicle too closely are all examples of reckless driving. Another important concern in the state is alcohol abuse. Each year, hundreds of individuals are killed in the state as a result of drunk driving.
