Motor Vehicle Crash Fatalities: The Facts
While car accidents are not the most common cause of death, they still account for a high percentage of deaths. Despite modern safety features, the lifetime odds of dying in a motor vehicle crash is 1 in 93, according to the National Safety Council.
In addition, drivers and passengers riding in the front row of a vehicle are most at risk of dying in a crash. Passengers riding in the second or third rows made up only seven percent of deaths in 2021, according to data from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS.)
2022 was less deadly in Texas than in 2021, but the state still saw many fatalities and injuries:
- 1 person was killed every hour and 57 minutes
- Someone was injured every two minutes and nine seconds
- There were 4,481 deaths compared to 4,497 deaths on Texas roads in 2021
- There were 244,092 people injured in 2022 and 18,880 people suffered severe injuries
- 636 people died in head-on collisions
