Police Pursuit Accidents

Unfortunately, not every motorist pulls over when they see flashing lights in their rear-view mirror. Some drivers become scared, have an outstanding warrant for their arrest, are driving while impaired, or have illegal drugs in their possession. Regardless of the reason, some drivers flee from police.

Unfortunately these drivers often travel at high rates of speed and with reckless behavior, blasting through intersections, crosswalks, stop signs, and red lights. With the adrenaline pumping, they may make a mistake and cause an accident. According to recent statistics from the FBI, over 300 people are killed each year during dangerous police chases.
