Car Accidents in M issouri
Crashes that result in serious injuries for victims in the state of Missouri take place every single day. Unfortunately, there are many instances where these accidents take place at busy intersections.
One of the most common causes of car crashes at intersections is running red lights. Every day, drivers fail to stop at red lights and end up crashing into other cars, pedestrians, or cyclists. In some cases, this can result in serious injuries or even fatalities.
Another common cause of car crashes at intersections is failing to yield. When a driver fails to yield the right-of-way to oncoming traffic, it can often lead to a crash. This is especially true if the oncoming traffic has the green light.
Lastly, speeding is another major cause of car crashes at intersections. When drivers are speeding, they often have less time to react to a change in traffic conditions. This means that they are more likely to crash into another car or object.
