Wyoming residents on average drive the most of any state in the U.S. Wyoming’s large size makes for long drives. All of this driving has the potential to lead to accidents. While accurate numbers are not kept on non-fatal traffic accidents, there were 34,017 fatal traffic accidents in 2008 in the United States. http://www.nhtsa.gov/ Because of the large amounts driven by Wyoming drivers, those drivers are more at risk of accidents. There are certainly accidents on the road but many times car and tire manufacturers could have prevented them or at least avoided serious injuries and deaths.
Accidents can happen for many reasons, including tire failure like the problems that plagued Firestone tires in the past and accelerator problems like those that are troubling Toyota. There are also many other types of problems that can contribute to a traffic accident.
Truck accidents can occur for a variety of reasons. Semi-trucks are a common sight in Wyoming. Interstate 80 is one of the most heavily used corridors to move freight from coast to coast. As a result of the large numbers of trucks on I-80, there are numerous accidents involving commercial vehicles or semi trucks.
