Car Accidents in Missouri
A vehicle crash can impact your life forever. Regrettably, we see tens of thousands of people across Missouri left with significant injuries as a result of vehicle collisions that take place in our state. Unfortunately, car accidents caused by police pursuits are becoming more and more common.
There are a few key factors that contribute to the high number of car accidents caused by police pursuits. First, when a driver knows they are being chased by the police, they are more likely to take risks and drive recklessly. This increases the chances of an accident occurring.
Second, police vehicles are often traveling at high speeds during a pursuit. This makes it difficult for them to stop quickly or avoid obstacles in their path.
Third, because pursued drivers are trying to escape, they often don’t follow traffic laws. This can lead to dangerous situations for other motorists on the road.
