Car accidents in Arizona may be caused by equipment failure, defective roadway design, poor roadway maintenance, and/or driver behavior. Speeding and impaired driving are considered leading causes of car collisions.
According to KHPO, a man died in an Arizona traffic accident at the intersection of State Route 95 and Palo Verde. The victim was driving his pickup truck at a high speed when he struck another vehicle and subsequently hit a light pole. The victim died at the scene while the occupant of the other vehicle was uninjured.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) more than 33,000 people died in auto accidents nationwide in 2009. Speeding was the cause for some of these fatal accidents. The higher the vehicle speed, the greater the risk of an accident. It is expected that the outcome of an accident involving a vehicle travelling at a high speed is more severe and deadly than one involving vehicles travelling at relatively normal speeds. Speeding in Arizona decreases a driver’s reaction time while increasing their stopping distance. This makes it very difficult to avoid hazards. In order to avoid fatal and catastrophic injury accidents in Arizona speed limits must be obeyed.
