Fatal Car Accidents in Texas
Every day, around 10 people lose their lives in auto accidents across the state of Texas. Accidents involving buses and other large commercial vehicles are more likely to result in severe and fatal injuries for victims due to their ability to carry several people at once.
These vehicles are likely to cause severe damage to other vehicles sharing the road, which is why drivers are expected to go above and beyond to ensure the safety of others while traveling.
