In addition to these fatalities, nearly 300,000 people were also hurt in car accidents that took place last year in our state. The cause of every California car accident must be carefully investigated by authorities. However, many of the accidents that take place will be caused by the actions of a negligent or careless driver. Speeding, distraction, impairment, and reckless driving are among the main causes of fatal accidents in California.
