Accidents can occur on expressways due to various circumstances. One of the most common types of accidents is when one vehicle “rear-ends” another vehicle. These types of collisions can occur for many reasons, including driver distraction, adverse weather, and lack of visibility. Some of these collisions occur if one vehicle is following another vehicle too closely and can’t stop in time to avoid a collision.
