Highway Accidents in Berkeley
It is widely known that California is home to some of America’s most overcrowded highways. When you consider all of the tourists driving across the state on vacation, huge commercial trucks delivering goods both locally and across the country, and permanent residents going about their day-to-day activities, California highways can become a cramped space.
When an excessively high volume of cars are all using the same highway, traffic congestion, gridlock and automobile accidents, both fatal and those resulting in severe injuries, can’t be far behind.
