Auto Accidents In Escambia, Santa Rosa & Okaloosa Counties: Week 22 Recap

Dangerous Intersections (3)When passing an auto accident on the side of the road, many people think to themselves, “What happened?”

Every year auto accidents result in hundreds of thousands of injuries. The National Safety Council estimates 38,300 people were killed and 4.4 million injured on U.S. roads in 2015, which saw the largest one-year percentage increase in half a century.

With Florida ranking number three in careless or reckless driving accidents, it’s no wonder traffic accidents are increasing in Escambia County. FIRES (Florida’s integrated Report Exchange System), reports on behalf of the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. It serves as a portal into the State of Florida’s repository for traffic crash reports completed by Florida law enforcement agencies.
