In 2013, Motor Vehicle Crashes and Injuries Decline

DOT HS 812 101 2013 Traffic Safety Facts
After an increase in motor vehicle crash fatalities in 2012, fatalities on U.S. roadways in 2013 resumed the decline that had started seven years prior. Despite the decline in fatalities, the Nation still lost 32,719 people in crashes on roadways during 2013, down from 33,782 in 2012. The number of people injured on the Nation’s roads decreased in 2013 as well, falling from 2.4 to 2.3 million injured people. Fatalities and injuries declined in almost all segments of the population—passenger vehicle occupants, large-truck occupants, pedestrians, young drivers, and with alcohol-impaired driving fatalities. A particularly notable decrease was seen in the number of motorcyclists who lost their lives in 2013, down over 6 percent from 2012—318 fewer motorcyclists’ lives lost. Although the fatalities and injuries decreased from 2012 to 2013, the total number of crashes
that occurred on the roads increased slightly—primarily a result of an almost 3-percent increase in crashes that resulted in no injuries, only property damage.
