It is a case of basic physics. With more speed comes more momentum, making it harder to stop. When a car going 40 mph increases to 60 mph, the amount of potential energy that could be released in a collision doubles. This is one of the reasons why speeding is so deceptively dangerous. The car has only increased its speed by half, and yet the energy has doubled.

 

Also, the amount of time available to react is greatly shortened by speeding. If a driver is not paying close attention, a wreck is likely to happen. At the high speeds one finds on the interstate, the shortness of reaction time can make a wreck inevitable no matter how closely the driver is watching the road. At these speeds, it is also much more likely that the wreck will be severe.
