Vehicle Collisions in Texas
Studies show that someone is injured in a car collision every two minutes in Texas. When accidents occur at intersections, the main cause is negligence, which means drivers are either not paying attention or they’re under the influence. Drivers could also be driving too aggressive, especially if they’re in a rush to get to their destination or irritated with traffic.
