Fatal Multi-Vehicle Crash Statistics

The NHTSA estimates that over 5.2 million police-reported car accidents occurred in the United States by 2020. Thirty percent (1.6 million) of these crashes resulted in injuries, while less than one percent (35,766) resulted in fatalities.

Fatal crashes increased by 6.8 percent between 2019 and 2020, with a fatality rate of 1.34 deaths per 100 million vehicle trips in 2020. In 2020, the injury rate for 100 million vehicle miles traveled decreased 6.0 percent to 79 injuries per 100 million.

In traffic accidents, 67% of the victims are drivers, 24% are passengers, 4% are motorcyclists, 3% are pedestrians, and 2% are pedal cyclists.

A multiple-vehicle crash occurs when three or more vehicles collide. After an accident, up to six cars may become entangled in the wreckage.

Unlike traffic accidents, multi-vehicle accidents usually result in fatalities, serious injuries, and property damage. Losing control or having poor situational awareness could result in injuries to those nearby. Most collisions of this type are more likely to occur.
