Car accidents are traumatizing to the victims and their families. No one gets in their car hoping to get into an accident or waits to get hit. Recent data states that nearly 35,000 fatal car accidents happen yearly. Over half of all fatalities only involve one vehicle. So when are these fatal car accidents happening? There’s a reason why your parent or guardian tells you not to go out past midnight. The most common times for fatal car accidents is between midnight and 3 AM. They are most likely to happen on Saturdays. The second deadliest time frame is between 6 PM-9 PM.
A fatal car accident typically means that some died due to the severe injuries from a negligent driver. For example, drunk drivers or drivers who are under the influence of drugs are more likely to kill someone while driving; thus, turning a car accident into a fatal car accident. However, not all fatalities are caused by drunk drivers. Other reasons for fatal car accidents are distracted driving, wrong way driving, speeding, aggressive driving, or drowsy driving. Wrong way driving accounts for a small percentage of accidents, but the likelihood for a fatality is high because it usually results in a head-on collision.
Distracted driving is on the rise for most common reason for car accidents. People who are on their phone, changing the radio, turning the temperature, or talking to passengers may swerve into oncoming traffic unknowingly causing a head-on collision. Speeding and aggressive driving can prevent drivers from stopping at the right time frame causing him or her to run red lights or stop signs resulting in fatal crashes.
