Fatal Car Crash in Alabama
Every year, the state of Alabama witnesses the unexpected and sudden loss of hundreds of lives in automobile accidents. Regrettably, many of these fatalities are a result of driver negligence.
One of the most common causes of fatal car accidents across our state occurs when one driver turns their vehicle in the path of another, resulting in a collision. This often takes place at intersections when a driver fails to yield the right-of-way, or it can happen when a driver is pulling into a parking space or driveway without noticing oncoming traffic.
Another common cause of fatal collisions across our state is speeding. When drivers fail to control the speed of their vehicles, it can lead them to lose control and strike others nearby. Unfortunately, we also see many accidents take place as a result of distractions, impairments, and running red lights at intersections.
