A look at the causes of fatal car accidents

The Auto Insurance Center has conducted research on every fatal car accident in the United States between 2009 and 2013 to determine the leading causes of car accident fatalities in each state as well as the District of Columbia. The data was obtained from records kept by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. In California, fatal car accidents were most often caused by a driver who failed to make a proper turn. Failure to stay in the proper lane was the most common cause of fatal accidents in most parts of the country, however.

Highway 113 near Schlagle Road was the scene of this fatal weekend crash in which one of the vehicles involved caught fire.

Hikes in alcohol taxes result in fewer alcohol-related accidents

An average of 500,000 injuries and 10,000 deaths occur every year because of alcohol-related car accidents.
