Snow & Ice Accident Statistics
West Virginia winters result in ice and snow on the roads and highways, which can be a contributing factor in car accidents. According to the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), over 1,300 people die every year in car accidents on icy, snowy, or slushy pavement and another 116,800 suffer personal injury.
Most drivers know when to slow down and leave extra room between vehicles during inclement weather conditions. But when a driver causes a collision that results in injury or death due to failing to drive safely in snow and ice, he or she can be held liable for any injuries or death. The following are the driving hazards created by snowy and icy conditions:
- Less visibility due to falling snow, windblown snow, or snow that covers the reference points on the road (lines and medians).
- Slippery roads, including a hazard known as “black ice” that blends in with asphalt roads.
