Why Do So Many Rear-End Crashes Happen in Texas Each Year?
There are multiple reasons why rear-end crashes occur, and they almost always involve negligence. In some cases, rear-end collisions can involve multiple vehicles, as one hitting another results in a chain reaction.
Whether you were sitting at a red light, stop sign, or yielding to traffic or pedestrians, the vehicle behind you has the responsibility to stop too until you move forward. Unfortunately, when negligent drivers are not paying attention, they can collide with the vehicle in front of them without notice.
Some of the most common causes of rear-end crashes in Texas include:
- Avoidance maneuvers to go around a stopped or yielding vehicle
- Carelessly switching lanes to gain a better position in traffic
- Distracted driving
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Fatigued driving
- Following too closely
- Heavy traffic
- Mechanical failure, including brake or transmission malfunctions
- Road rage
No matter how or why a rear-end collision occurs, even when the crash occurs at a low rate of speed, the abrupt and jarring result can injure the occupant(s) of the lead vehicle, causing significant harm.
