Hawaii Car Crashes
The majority of the auto accidents that occur in the United States and throughout the state of Hawaii are the result of negligent driving. Drivers who are intoxicated, driving at unsafe speeds, or distracted cause collisions that end in serious injuries and even death for millions of people per year. One of the leading causes of auto accidents in Hawaii is speeding, which leads to more than 11,000 fatalities annually in the United States. With car accidents being one of the top ten most common reasons people lose their lives in the country, it is alarming to think that the majority of these wrecks could have been prevented.
