High-Speed Crashes in San Diego
Speeding is dangerous under any circumstances. Drivers who speed are less able to control their vehicles, setting the scene of a serious collision. These crashes can result in injuries much more severe than low-speed accidents.
Thousands are killed annually in high-speed crashes. 9,378 people were killed in high-speed collisions in 2018. In some cases, injured parties can pursue lost compensation with the help of a California car crash attorney.
