Drive belts are used to turn the alternator , power steering pump , water pump and air-conditioning compressor , Due to their function and material make-up , the belt are prone to failure after a period of time and should be inspected for ( cracks , separation of the belt plies , fraying and glazing ) It is reccomended to inspect the belt periodically to prevent major engine damage .As for your question can this cause a serious accident ? that's hard to say ?? Be on the SAFE SIDE get the belt change, safe driving to you
