Car Accidents in Texas
Studies confirm that at least one fatal car collision occurs every day in Texas. Many of the fatal collisions that happen late at night on weekends are a result of drowsy or drunk driving. When drivers are operating their vehicles without their headlights on, they’re usually not fully coherent due to fatigue or intoxication. Under these circumstances, drivers are more likely to accidentally drift into opposite lanes and cause major collisions that could cost them their lives.
