Fatal Car Accidents in Alabama

Every year, fatal crashes take the lives of hundreds of people across our state. Unfortunately, many of these accidents are preventable. We see many innocent people die due to drivers who are careless and reckless while operating their vehicles.

Running red lights is extremely dangerous and is one of the leading causes of fatal car crashes in our state. When drivers run red lights, they are putting themselves and others at risk for serious injury or death. Not only is it illegal to run a red light, but it is also irresponsible and careless.

Failing to yield is another leading factor in many fatal collisions in Alabama. When a driver fails to yield, they are putting other drivers at risk of being seriously harmed or killed.

Speeding is another leading factor in fatal collisions in Alabama. When a driver speeding, they are increasing their own risk of being involved in an accident as well as the risk of harming other drivers and passengers on the road. Speeding makes it more difficult for drivers to control their vehicles and increases the likelihood of an accident occurring.
