CAR AND TRUCKING ACCIDENTS
In the United States, over 37,000 people die in car accidents each year with an additional 2.35 million people injured or disabled. Cell phone use while driving accounts for approximately 1.6 million car accidents per year. Sending or reading a text typically takes the driver’s eyes off the road for 5 seconds, and at 55 mph, that is the equivalent of driving an entire football field.
Approximately 400,000 accidents involving large trucks occur each year. The leading causes of these accidents are prescription drugs, traveling too fast, over-the-counter drugs, fatigue, alcohol and illegal drugs.
