Multi-Vehicle Collision Statistics
Car accidents in the U.S. happen more often than you think. According to the National Highway Traffic Administration, a car accident occurs every 60 seconds. This means approximately 5.25 million car accidents occur every year throughout the country. On average, there are at least 6 million traffic accidents that occur in the U.S. every year. In 2019 alone, approximately 33,244 fatal motor vehicle crashes occurred, which resulted in 36,096 deaths.
Multi-vehicle collisions typically involve three or more vehicles. A “chain reaction frequently causes this type of accident,” in which one car collides with another, potentially causing the other vehicle to collide with another. This type of accident can be more deadly and complicated. These accidents commonly occur due to reckless drivers, speeding, drunk drivers, and distracted drivers.
