Fatal Two-Vehicle Crash Statistics
Car accidents happen every day on U.S. roadways. This comes as no surprise as cars are the most common form of transportation in the country. Millions of cars pass through U.S. roadways every day. The number of people killed or injured in car accidents in the United States has risen dramatically over the years.
According to the National Safety Council (NSC), an estimated 38,000 people were killed in motor vehicle accidents in the United States in 2019. Car accidents are sometimes life-altering and traumatic.
Because of how universal cars are to our lives, drivers often forget just how dangerous they can become and that severe and even deadly car crashes can occur. A variety of reasons cause these car accidents; they mainly occur due to drunk drivers, distracted drivers, people who break the speed limit, and drivers who ignore road laws in general.
