Understanding Multi-Vehicle Crashes

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in 2012, there were a total of 5,615,000 car accidents in the United States. Of those, 30,800 were fatal crashes and 1,634,000 involved injuries. Some of these accidents were multi-vehicle collisions.

A multi-vehicle collision, otherwise known as a pile-up is a car accident involving many vehicles. These accidents usually occur on high-capacity or high-speed routes such as freeways, and they are one of the deadliest types of collisions.

Common causes of multi-vehicle accidents:

  • Low-visibility conditions
  • Tailgating
  • Black ice
  • Dense fog
  • Heavy rain
  • Whiteout conditions
  • Debris in the roadway

Chain reaction crashes can occur when there is black ice or when debris on the road is unexpectedly encountered by drivers round a curve or a crest of a hill. Further, if a car has a mechanical problem and suddenly halts, those behind don't have time to stop and may hit it.

In areas with high traffic volumes, more cars are forced to brake and skid, and they dart into other lanes or in front of oncoming traffic.
