More often times than not, car wrecks can lead to assault. In 2018 there were more than 73,000 reports of aggravated assaults. Although this number doesn’t have a clear categorization of which assaults were done at the scenes of car accidents, it does make it clear that assault is a serious issue. Texas, specifically, has the second-highest volume of reported aggravated assaults behind #1 California.
