5 Important Road Crash Statistics

Those who are lucky enough to have never been involved in a vehicle accident often believe this will never happen to them. However, another driver could make a mistake at any point, leading to an accident in which you are injured.

For a better idea of how common vehicle accidents have become, here are five important statistics compiled by the Association for Safe International Road Travel:

  • More than 37,000 people die in road crashes every year in the United States
  • Along with those who are killed, another 2.5 million are injured
  • More than 1,600 children under the age of 15 are die every year in a vehicle accident
  • Road crashes cost the United States more than $230 billion per year
  • Nearly 8,000 people are killed in crashes involving drivers ages 16-20

With these road crash statistics in mind, it is easier to see just how many people are involved in accidents every year.
