We may call them car accidents, but the truth is that in most cases when passenger cars, trucks, or SUVs collide, one of the drivers was at fault. Crashes are almost always the result of a driver not paying adequate attention to the road or violating traffic rules. No matter how careful you are when driving, you face the risk of other negligent drivers on the road every time you get in the car.
In 2022, there were more than 293,000 crashes on Michigan roads. About 20,000 of those crashes occurred in Kent County, which is the county in Michigan with the fourth highest number of crashes. Statewide, these crashes resulted in more than 1,000 people losing their lives and more than 70,000 people being injured in 2022.
