The Insurance Information Institute of Highway Safety reports that side impact collisions are particularly dangerous. These accidents represent 23 percent of passenger vehicle occupant deaths and are also responsible for a substantial number of serious injuries.
Common Causes of T-Bone Accidents
Many sideswipe accidents occur when drivers at intersections fail to yield the right of way to other motorists on the road. Often, one driver will dangerously make a left turn at an intersection with the belief that the opposing driver will stop. Sometimes these accidents occur when drivers fail to follow traffic directions. Some of the other reasons why sideswipe accidents occur include motorists who text while driving, drivers who fall asleep at the wheel, and drivers who fiddle with the radio while making a left hand turn.
