Fatal Car Accidents in Texas
Around ten people lose their lives each day in motor vehicle accidents across the state of Texas. In many cases, these crashes are entirely preventable. We see many drivers, passengers, and other travelers lose their lives in accidents due to the negligence of others. Some of the leading causes of fatal crashes include:
- Driving while under the influence of alcohol
- Driver inattention
