Why Would Someone Drive Against The Flow Of Traffic? Do Wrong-Way Auto Accidents Usually Involve Drugs?

Wrong-way accidents often cause serious injuries and fatalities. These types of accidents are sometimes caused by drivers being inattentive, distracted, or sleepy. Other times, wrong-way accidents are caused because signs are not properly or clearly posted to prevent confusion by drivers.

Still, wrong-way accidents continue to make headline news due to causes rooted in aggression, drugs or alcohol.  Very recently, four fatalities were caused by a wrong-way accident along I-95 in Miami-Dade County. The driver, Willie Dumel, was fleeing the police after being pulled over and had a criminal history for drug possession and trespassing. Dumel survived the accident, only to have caused the wrongful death of four lives when he crashed into another car.
