Multi-Vehicle Collision Statistics

Car accidents in the United States are more frequent than you might expect. Every 60 seconds, a car accident happens, according to the National Highway Traffic Administration. This means that around 5.25 million car accidents occur in the United States each year. Every year, at least 6 million traffic accidents occur in the United States. In 2019, there were around 33,244 fatal motor vehicle crashes, resulting in 36,096 deaths.

Multi-vehicle accidents are only one type of car accident. This accident occurs when three or more vehicles are involved. A “chain reaction usually produces this type of collision,” in which one car collides with another, which causes the other vehicle to collide with possibly another vehicle. In this case, a truck was also involved in the collision. Truck accidents cause some of the most serious injuries of all traffic accidents, in large part because a heavy truck generates more force in a collision.
