Examining Texas Car Accident Statistics

Texas generally makes it on the top of the list in terms of states with the highest rates of car accidents. Its many major cities are heavily congested with traffic and therefore a hotbed for accidents.

Statewide Auto Accident Data

The Texas Motor Vehicle Crash Facts report for 2019 showed how often the people in the Lone Star State are affected by auto collisions. Not one day passed in which a traffic fatality didn’t occur that year.

Some of the more alarming statistics that also stood out that year include:

  • There was a total of 3,623 motor traffic fatalities.
  • Out of 12,909 injury crashes, 15,857 people sustained serious injuries.
  • 1,876 fatalities occurred in rural traffic crashes.
  • One car accident resulted in six or more fatalities.
  • Someone lost their life in a car accident every two hours and 25 minutes.
  • Every two minutes and three seconds, someone was hurt in a collision.

Houston Auto Accident Data

Let’s compare this state data to specific Houston car crash statistics from the same year:

  • There were 69,168 total traffic crashes.
  • Out of 241 fatal crashes, 254 people lost their lives.
  • There were 1,212 serious crashes that left 1,409 motorists with severe injuries.

Most of the crashes that occurred here in Houston that latest reported year were attributable to reckless driving, which may include speeding, driving while intoxicated, drag racing, failing to obey traffic signs or signals, distractions, and other dangerous vehicle operation tactics.

With these auto accidents happening so frequently, there are a lot of people left to deal with the consequences who may not know who to turn to for help.
