Fatal Car Accidents in Michigan

Ewen, MI – Teen Killed in Head-On Collision on M-28Motor vehicle accidents in Michigan take the lives of hundreds of people every year. Far too often, innocent people die as a result of crashes caused by reckless and negligent drivers. Leading factors in many of the accidents that we see in our state include:

  • Drivers who operate their vehicles while impaired by alcohol.
  • Drivers who run red lights at intersections.
  • Drivers who pass stop signs at busy intersections.
  • Drivers who failed to yield when switching lanes.
  • Drivers who are texting on their phones or distracted by other means.

When drivers are reckless and negligent while behind the wheel, it can have devastating consequences for everyone sharing the road. Unfortunately, innocent people lose their lives daily as a result of vehicle collisions in our state.
