Car Wrecks In McLennan County - By The Numbers

In a previous post, we looked at the statewide numbers behind summer car wrecks. Today, we are taking a more in-depth look at crashes that happen closer to home - McLennan County - and throughout an entire year instead of just the summer.

In 2014 in McLennan County there were:

  • 4,920 car crashes
  • 891 accidents caused by distracted driving (18 percent of all accidents)
  • 436 crashes where speed was a contributing factor (8 percent of all accidents)
  • 264 accidents were the result of DUI (5 percent of all accidents)

There were also 625 work zone/road construction zone accidents in McLennan County in 2014.

Fatal Crashes

In 2014, there were 39 fatal car wrecks in McLennan County. These crashes happened on all types of roads throughout the county, and the fatalities break down as follows:

  • 11 fatalities on U.S. and state highways
  • 10 fatalities on "farm to market" roads
  • 8 fatalities on Interstate highways
  • 7 fatalities on city streets
  • 3 fatalities on county roads

The lesson we can learn from this information? Be safe on McLennan County roadways, because even with the increase in safety initiatives that have gone into effect in the past decade, thousands of accidents still occur each year.

Also, if you've been hurt in a car wreck or lost a loved one due to an auto accident, be sure to reach out to an attorney. The other driver's insurance company will launch a legal team into action right away, and so should you. If you don't take this important step as soon as possible, you could be at a disadvantage when it comes time to seek compensation for your injuries or loss.
