Car Accident 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.
Tens of thousands of drivers and passengers lose their lives each year due to crashes. According to the United States Department of Transportation’s Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS), there were 33,654 fatal vehicle crashes in 2018, which caused 36,560 deaths.
This fact means there were 11.2 deaths per 100,000 people, 1.13 deaths per 100 million miles traveled, and one death every 12 to 15 minutes in the U.S.
Multi-vehicle collisions usually involve three or more vehicles. A “chain-reaction commonly causes this type of accident,” wherein one car will bump into another, which will cause the other vehicle to crash into another one potentially. This type of accident can be more deadly and complicated.
