Vehicle Accidents in Texas

Austin, TX - Major Vehicle Crash on 5th StIn Texas alone, over 80,000 vehicle accidents occur because of drivers not paying attention to their surroundings. Driver inattention could occur for multiple reasons, some of which include being on a cell phone, disciplining a child, eating, putting on makeup, and more. Sometimes emergencies occur and drivers unintentionally veer into opposite lanes or suddenly brake. However, most of the time when drivers veer into opposite lanes, it’s often because of drunk driving or driving while fatigued, which produces the same bodily responses and equally puts drivers in danger.
