Rear-end crashes are common types of motor vehicle accidents. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, these accidents account for 29% of all traffic collisions that happen in the U.S. and are the most frequently occurring type of motor vehicle accident.
Many rear-end collisions happen when traffic has slowed in front of a driver who fails to notice in time. The driver will then collide into the rear of the vehicle in front of him or her. Rear-end accidents can also happen when people suddenly change lanes and collide into the rear of a vehicle in the lanes they are entering. Some of these crashes can also happen when people change lanes and cut people off who are in the lanes directly behind their vehicles.
