Fatigued Driver Accidents
While we have no idea from this report what might have caused this man to go off the road, AAA recently issued a report that found tired drivers are responsible for far more deadly crashes than previously estimated. Nearly 17 percent – estimated to be one in six fatal crashes — result from drowsy and tired drivers, according to the study. The report also reveals that 41 percent of respondents admitted to falling asleep behind the wheel at some point in their lives.
