Rear-End Crash Statistics

When an automobile in front of you collides with the car in the back, you have a rear-end collision. A rear-end collision is almost often (but not always) the fault of the driver in the rear position because the leading driver cannot generally avert the collision.

Automobile accidents involving a driver’s vehicle being rear-ended are among the most common in the state. The California Highway Patrol (CHP) reports that in 2011, 118,029 drivers were injured in rear-end incidents, and 405 drivers died due to those collisions.

Injured driving, distracted driving, tailgating, reckless driving, and driving under the influence are common causes of rear-end collisions.

To prevent rear-end incidents, it’s important to remember that many of the factors that contribute to them—such as following too closely, speeding, having old brakes or tires—are the driver’s fault in the car in the rear position. The rear driver is responsible for these elements, not the front driver.
