Fatal Multi-Vehicle Collision Statistics

A car accident occurs far more frequently than you might expect. According to the NHTSA, it’s estimated that somewhere in the United States, a car accident occurs every 60 seconds. This translates to approximately 5.25 million car accidents every year.

Traffic collisions can be life-changing and catastrophic. Drivers usually fail to recognize how dangerous automobiles can become and how easily severe and even fatal car accidents can occur because they have become so common in our lives.

Over six million people are injured or killed in car wrecks each year in the United States alone. Around 33,244 people were killed in motor vehicle accidents that resulted in 36,096 deaths in 2019.

The fatal multi-vehicle collision occurred here. A two-vehicle collision usually leads to a multi-vehicle accident in some cases. A multi-vehicle collision occurs when a two-vehicle crash triggers the third collision, resulting in a “chain-reaction” crash.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that multi-vehicle accidents account for less than 10% of all collisions, resulting in a significantly higher number of fatalities.
