Kentucky Car Wrecks

Kentucky car wrecks happen hundreds of thousands of times per year. On average, more than 150,000 auto accidents are reported annually in the state. Sadly, tens of thousands of people are hurt in these wrecks and thousands end up losing their lives. The majority of these collisions are, unfortunately, caused by driver negligence.  

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration found that over 92% of reported car crashes in the US happen because of negligent driving. Car wrecks that occur when drivers act negligently are usually more dangerous than wrecks that happen for other reasons. Drivers who are intoxicated, distracted, over-tired, or speeding often have their judgment or reaction times reduced, creating a dangerous situation for everyone on the road.
