Fatal Car Accidents in Texas
Each year, motor vehicle accidents in the state of Texas take the lives of more than 4000 people. Roughly 50% of all crashes that take place in our state occur at intersections. When drivers negligently pass through intersections without yielding the right-of-way to others, they can cause severe accidents that result in injury or death.
Some of the most common causes of crashes at intersections include drivers who failed to yield the right-of-way to others, passing stop signs and passing red lights.
