Multi-Vehicle Accidents in California
According to a recent study, over 80% of drivers blatantly admit to hazardous behavior while driving, such as changing clothes, driving with one leg, applying make-up, or even shaving. Because there is no real way to test for distracted driving, its widely believed that the number of crashes, injuries, and fatalities caused by distracted driving are vastly underreported. Detectives will conduct a thorough investigation to determine who was at fault.
