Marijuana, Cocaine, and Amphetamines are a Common Occurrence in Car Crash Fatalities

WSJ Team June 23, 2011 0

A new study led by Researchers with the Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation in Calverton, MD, stated that drugs other than alcohol are a common occurrence in car crash fatalities. The drugs that were found to be most common were marijuana, cocaine, and amphetamines. It was found that nearly 25% of the victims in car crashes tested positive for drugs.

The researchers made it clear that they do not know whether these drugs were the cause of the crash. However, they postulated that a person who uses illegal drugs may act more recklessly when they are driving. The researchers further stated that the suspicion that drugs other than alcohol causes crashes definitely exist and there is a need for more research on the matter.
