Here is an interesting article about the recent tragic train crash in Spain. What does a Spanish train crash have to do with Missouri car accidents? One word: Speed.
According to the National Highway Transportation and Safety Administration, “Speeding is one of the most prevalent factors contributing to traffic crashes”; and when crashes result in fatalities, “young males are the most likely to be speeding.” In 2010, there were 10,530 deaths in speed-related crashes, or 31 percent of all fatalities on the road.
Unfortunately we see too many Missouri car accidents and speeding was a contributing factor. Throw in the distraction from a phone call or text message and it can make for a deadly combination.
