Topeka, KS - Driver Hurt in Rear-end Crash at US-24 & Kansas AveIt is difficult to know whether or not you will be in a car accident that would change your life. It is almost impossible to predict when you will be hit from behind unless your eyes are fixed on the rearview mirror. Rear-end collisions are the most often reported type of collision in the United States of America, accounting for about 1.7 million reported crashes annually. These nearly two million rear-end crashes result in an average of 1,700 fatalities and 500,000 injuries. These kinds of collisions are typically the result of the driver coming from behind, and the jerky motion from the impact can easily cause twisting or neck injuries.
