Fatal Head-On Motorcycle Accident Statistics

A motorcycle accident is a tragedy that almost always causes more harm to the motorcyclist than the other party involved. Motorcycle riders are particularly vulnerable to collisions and are more likely than others to sustain catastrophic and even fatal injuries. Motorcycle riders have 16 times the risk of injury and 35 times the risk of a fatal crash than car passengers.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s National Center for Statistics and Analysis, approximately 5,286 motorcyclists were killed in the U.S. in 2016. Some of the common causes of motorcycle accidents are distracted driving, speeding, drunk driving, reckless driving, bad weather, wrong-way driving, and failure to observe traffic laws.
