The Problem of Oklahoma Car Accidents

By Car Accident Help on September 11, 2015

Oklahoma Auto AccidentsThe American Automotive Association (AAA) states that there are over six million reported motor vehicle accidents each year in the United States. Considering the amount of cars on the road in this country, this number is definitely believable. But let’s take a look closer to home. Here are some statistics from the Oklahoma Highway Safety Office from the year 2010.

  • There were over 69,000 vehicle accidents in Oklahoma
  • 19,000 of those accidents involved drivers between the ages of 16 and 20
  • Approximately 37,000 people were injured in vehicle accidents
  • Most accidents involved at least two vehicles
  • Of drivers killed in accidents, 72 percent were male
  • Over 6,000 were injured and 128 were killed in speed related accidents.
  • Over 4,000 accidents were alcohol related
  • 245 alcohol related accidents led to 245 fatalities
  • Overall, there were 668 vehicle accident related deaths
  • Almost one in 10 drivers killed were aged 16 to 20

Those are sobering statistics for drivers and passengers in the Sooner State. While today’s cars are much safer than those of the past, we can see that there is still the risk of death or injury on the road.
