Multi-Vehicle Collision Statistics

Car accidents often have long-term and, in some circumstances, fatal repercussions. To avoid this, all drivers should drive responsibly.

Car accidents are unfortunately not uncommon in the United States. In 2018, there were roughly 33,654 fatal motor vehicle accidents. In that year, 36,560 persons were killed in automobile accidents.

Multi-vehicle collisions are only one sort of automotive accident. When three or more cars collide, this type of accident occurs. They are typically triggered by a “chain-reaction” crash, in which one vehicle crashes into another, potentially causing it to collide with other cars on the road.

According to the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles, multi-vehicle crashes accounted for around 7% of all crashes and more than 25% of all fatalities.

Reckless driving, excessive speeding, drunk drivers, and inattentive drivers are common causes of car accidents.
