Vehicle Accidents in Austin
In 2017, about 75 fatal car accidents occurred in Austin. Most of the time these accidents occur due to violation of traffic laws, speed, alcohol consumption, and distractions. Sadly, even the most subtle distractions can cause serious accidents. For example, a driver might be trying to grab an item that fell out of their hand, causing them to loosen their grip on the wheel and constantly take their focus off of their surroundings. All it takes is less than five seconds of scanning the crevices of a car for a major crash to happen.
