As in every state, car accidents in New Mexico are generally believed to be caused by the carelessness of one or more drivers. Whether it involves a single vehicle or multiple vehicles, an accident can occur because a driver is texting while driving, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs or driving without adequate training, among other reasons.
An auto accident that occurs on the streets of any New Mexico city or town is always unfortunate. Not only can it lead to personal injury, but some car crash victims lose their lives. Despite this knowledge, motorists continue to rush along New Mexico's streets, failing to yield to others, and not always succeeding in avoiding tragic car accidents.
