In our latest library article, we discussed California fatal car accident statistics, drunk driving statistics, and unrestrained occupant statistics. For our blog post today, we’ll continue the conversation by taking a look at what kinds of crashes cause deadly car accidents across the state.

While these numbers can be shocking, it is important to note that the majority of these statistics have been falling significantly—even within the past five years. Fewer people are dying on our roads and highways as: safety technology improves, more Californians buckle up, and more people become aware of the dangers of speeding, driving under the influence, and distracted driving.
