Car Accidents in El Paso
Sadly, in 2015, the El Paso Police Department reported that 64 people lost their lives in El Paso County after being involved in traffic collisions. Throughout the entire state of Texas, speed is the leading factor of all major collisions, including collisions that occur at intersections. Drivers tend to disregard yellow lights and speed through red lights even though they should slow down and come to a complete stop. Drivers who are driving recklessly are under the impression that other drivers will yield to their reckless behavior. However, if other drivers are not paying attention, it’s easy for a dangerous collision to occur and harm everyone involved.
