Driver error: These crashes are often caused by driving distractions such as texting, eating, personal grooming or talking to passengers; failure to follow the rules of the road; misjudging traffic conditions; falling asleep behind the wheel; or simply failing to pay adequate attention to one's driving.

Vehicle malfunction: common vehicle failures that have caused crashes include faulty tires, bad steering columns, and transmission or engine problems.

Environmental factors: Slick roads in the winter and glare in the summer are both frequent causes of car accidents, in addition to road construction, obstructed views, poor traffic planning, and negligent road design.
