Car Accidents in Oregon
Each year, serious crashes take place in the state of Oregon that force victims into area hospitals with injuries. Many accidents take place at intersections here in the Portland area.
Intersections are one of the most dangerous places on the road. They are the site of many serious and fatal crashes every year. The fact that intersections are typically busy can make it difficult for drivers to see what is going on around them and make it easy for them to miss something important.
There are some intersections that are designed in a way that makes it easy for drivers to make mistakes. For example, some intersections have multiple lanes and turn lanes that can be confusing for drivers to navigate. This can lead to drivers making wrong turns or going the wrong way. It can also be difficult for some motorists to see red lights or stop signs if there are vehicles, objects, or structures obstructing the view.
Unfortunately, speeding is a leading cause of crashes at intersections in the state of Oregon. When drivers speed through an intersection, they increase the risk of crashing into another vehicle or pedestrian. Speeding also makes it more difficult for drivers to stop in time if someone else enters the intersection unexpectedly.
