TxDOT details what caused most of the fatal crashes in 2018


More than 3,600 people died on Texas roadways in 2018, according to data recently released by the Texas Department of Transportation.

In a series of reports, TxDOT officials detailed what they call "contributing factors" in the spate of deadly wrecks, which is essentially a list of things that caused each wreck. One fatal wreck can have multiple contributing factors, such as falling asleep or driving while intoxicated.

The most common contributing factors to the state's fatal crashes in 2018 were speed-related, which was cited in 1,153 crashes. The next most cited reason was alcohol and/or drug-related with 916.
