Texas Motorcycle Crash Statistics
On average, one motorcyclist died in a crash in Texas every day in 2020. Even though motorcycle wrecks in general reduced by two percent that year, fatalities increased by 17 percent in that same year. In fact, motorcyclist fatalities make up 12 percent of all traffic fatalities in the state. That might seem like a small percentage, but there are far less motorcyclists on the road compared to regular vehicles.
Additionally, the Texas Department of Transportation released a report of motorcyclists who were injured and killed in crashes in 2020. Here are the different levels of injury and the number of victims from Texas motorbike wrecks that year:
- 1,222 non-injuries
- 1,704 possible injuries
- 2,687 non-incapacitating injuries
- 1,856 suspected serious injuries
- 482 fatalities
Comparatively to other accidents, like car and truck accidents, the numbers for victims who suffered injuries compared to non-injuries are much larger. This is because riders and passengers on motorcycles are more exposed when they are on the bike.
When someone crashes into them, they are more likely to be injured because their bodies are directly impacted by the vehicle. If they are thrown from the motorcycle, the impact of the pavement can create even more injuries.
