Vehicle Accidents in Texas
Nearly 18,000 people sustained serious injuries in Texas in 2017. The saddest aspect about people getting hurt in car accidents is that almost all accidents have the potential of being avoided. Because most accidents are caused by negligent behavior, if drivers committed to not driving under the influence, using their cell phones, driving aggressively, and driving impatiently, then less accidents would occur, and less people would get hurt.
