Fatal Car Accident Statistics

Car accidents happen all the time on American highways. These mishaps might alter your life and make you unhappy. Because vehicles are so vital in our daily lives, it’s easy to forget how deadly they can be. Severe, even fatal, car accidents can occur.

According to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS), 33,654 fatal car accidents killed 36,560 people in 2018.

In this case, a speeding driver triggered the fatal collision. Excessive speeding reduces the amount of time a driver has to react in a dangerous situation to avoid a crash, increases vehicle stopping distance, and reduces the ability of road safety structures (such as guardrails, impact attenuators, crash cushions, median dividers, and concrete barriers) to protect vehicle occupants in a crash.

Speeding is a major cause of road deaths and injuries. According to the National Safety Council, in 2019, speeding was a factor in 26 percent of all road deaths, killing 9,478, or more than 25 people each day. The overall number of fatal motor vehicle accidents caused by speeding was 8,544.
