Vehicle Accidents in Texas
Whenever vehicle accidents happen in the middle of the night, it’s usually caused by drunk driving. In 2016, approximately 987 people lost their lives in vehicle accidents as a result of drunk driving on Texas roads. When drivers drink too much alcohol, they run the risk of not being able to successfully control their vehicles, making them more likely to veer into opposite lanes and rear-end other vehicles.
