Fatal Car Accident in North Hollywood
In 2022, Los Angeles experienced its most-deadly year for traffic fatalities in over two decades when 312 people were killed in traffic accidents in the city. This number was a 5 percent increase over reported 2021 fatalities and a 29 percent increase over 2020’s numbers. The reason for the uptick in the number of fatal accidents is unclear. However, Los Angeles city leaders implemented the Vision Zero plan several years ago in an effort to reduce the number of deaths attributable to traffic fatalities. Sadly, those efforts have not yet been successful as the streets of Los Angeles appear to be turning more dangerous for motorists instead.
Each serious and fatal accident will be carefully investigated by authorities in order to determine the cause. A large majority of car accidents in this area and across the country are caused by negligent driving. These crashes involve drivers who were violating traffic and safety laws at the time of the accident. In most instances, the crash could have been avoided through the use of basic care and caution. Perhaps most tragically, innocent victims can be the ones who are most affected by careless driving.
