Dallas Auto Accident Statistics
Of the more than 32,000 car crashes in Dallas in 2017, more than 13,000 resulted in injuries. According to Texas DOT crash records, during the same one-year period, there were 197 fatalities in Dallas alone. In a city of over 1.3 million, you always run the risk of being injured in a car accident. Sadly, even if you are incredibly safe behind the wheel, you simply cannot prevent others from driving badly.
Common Types of Car Accidents
There is no limit to the type of collisions we see on the road in Dallas. Of course, there are some types of crashes that happen quite frequently. These include:
Rear-End Crashes. Careless and inattentive drivers often forget to watch where they are going. They become distracted by cell phones, vehicle controls, radios, and conversations with passengers. Whatever causes people to not pay attention, these accidents can be far more serious than a mere “fender bender.” Even at relatively slow speeds, people can suffer severe whiplash and back injuries in a rear-end collision.
T-Bone Collisions. In these cases, one driver often disregards a traffic control signal and strikes another vehicle directly from the side. These are sometimes called “broadside” collisions and most often occur at intersections. These collisions can be very serious, because there is less to protect occupants when there is an impact from the side.
Head-On Collisions. Perhaps the most dangerous and deadly of all crashes is the head-on collision. When two vehicles are approaching each other, their combined speed can quickly accelerate the effective rate of deceleration. In other words, the effective speed of the crash is more than doubled when both objects are moving toward each other.
