Chain reaction accidents, also known as multi-vehicle accidents or pile-up accidents, occur when more than two cars hit each other in a chain of rear-end accidents. A chain reaction typically begins with a single collision. The first car collides with the car ahead of it, which loses control and strikes another car, and potentially another and so on. The following examples are common types of chain reaction collisions:
- Two or more cars are stopped at an intersection when a vehicle hits the last car in the line, causing that car to crash into the one ahead of it and creating a domino effect.
