Wisconsin Car Accident Statistics for Multi Vehicle Accidents
The winter weather conditions in Wisconsin make it far more likely for multi vehicle accidents to take place. One vehicle travelling too fast for conditions can lead to many vehicles colliding, with several injuries or deaths. A driver who violates the law with excessive speed or drives a vehicle at a speed that is dangerous on icy or snowy roads puts everyone at risk of death.
The statistics indicate the numbers of multi vehicle accidents in Wisconsin in 2012:
191 multi vehicle accidents
281 deaths to vehicle occupants involved passenger cars
128 deaths to vehicle occupants involved trucks or SUVs
Types of Injuries in Multi Vehicle Accidents
The injuries sustained in a multi vehicle accident range from minor muscular injuries to catastrophic or fatal injuries. Cases involving commercial trucks often lead to multi vehicle accidents. When a truck jackknifes or impacts another vehicle on the side while travelling on the highway it can easily push vehicles into oncoming lanes or adjacent lanes. The injuries could include:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Brain injuries
- Broken bones
- Internal injuries
- Muscular injuries
- Severe lacerations with permanent scarring
Causes of Multi Vehicle Accidents
The causes of multi vehicle accidents can be weather related or could be the result of a faulty auto part or system, such as a sudden tire blowout leading the vehicle to loose control.
There are high numbers of people who consume alcohol who are behind the wheel and are less capable of making split second decisions. Alcohol also impairs judgment and promotes unsafe driving which may lead to a multi vehicle accident.
Driver distraction is also a contributing factor to these types of accidents. A driver who is daydreaming, eating, texting, or engaged in any other activity that has drawn their attention off the road ahead can drift out of lanes into oncoming traffic. Another common result of distracted driving is when the driver isn’t watching the road and crashes into the rear of a stopped vehicle, causing a chain reaction.\
