Multi-Vehicle Crash Statistics
Death and serious injury from accidents occur most frequently in vehicles in the United States. More than two million people lose their lives and ten million are injured every year as a result of traffic-related incidents.
The National Safety Council said that in 2020, more lives were lost in car accidents as a result of risky behaviors like speeding, drinking and driving, and failing to wear a seat belt. Prior to that year’s 8.3 percent increase, death rates had been falling for three consecutive years. In 2019, there were 39,107 fatalities attributed to car accidents in the United States. In 2020, that number rose to 42,338.
It was estimated that 3,847 people lost their lives in car accidents in California in 2020. Almost half of the fatalities (1,587 or 41%) were the result of collisions involving two or more vehicles, while more than half (2,260 or 59%) were the result of accidents involving only one vehicle.
