Driver Fell Asleep Pictures and Stories
Driver Fatigue and falling asleep at the wheel is a major cause of car crashes. Fatigue can be very difficult to identify as the source of accidents because estimates are made based almost solely on police reports, and driver statements. Estimates are that 10-20% of fatal accidents and about 5 to 10% of all car accidents may be related to tired drivers.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration there may be as many as 100,000 crashes from driver fatigue each year, with an estimated 1,550 deaths, 71,000 people injured, causing $12.5 billion economic losses. These figures may be the tip of the iceberg, since currently it is difficult to attribute crashes to sleepiness. Here at car-accidents.com contributors have identified falling asleep as the cause of thier crash and we have these featured below. Submit your Sleep Crash pictures and story here >>
