Phoenix Automobile Crash Statistics
Car accidents are all too common in Phoenix. Phoenix is the most populous capital in the United States and the center of Valley of the Sun (metropolitan area). It boasts over 1.5 million people in 2016, making it the sixth largest city in the United States. It is estimated that in 2016 Phoenix’s metropolitan area was home to over 4.5 million people. To compare, this is approximately seven times the population of the city of Seattle. With such a large, and continuously growing population, Phoenix and its surrounding areas continue to add and improve their infrastructure and freeways. However, vehicle accidents, injuries and fatalities continue to be on the rise.
Phoenix has one of the most advanced freeway systems in the country. The major freeways that run through Arizona include: Interstate 40, which runs west to east across Northern Arizona, Interstate 10, which runs east to west through southern Arizona in addition to connecting Tucson and Phoenix, Interstate 8, which runs east to west between Yuma and Interstate 10, Interstate 19, which runs from Tucson to Nogales, Interstate 17, which runs from Phoenix through Flagstaff and U.S. 60, which spans most of the country.
With such a large population and extensive Interstate system, motor vehicle accidents and deaths are a major concern. Each year the Arizona Department of Transportation publishes Arizona Motor Vehicle Crash Facts, which is a statistical finding of vehicle crashes in Arizona. The finding details each type of accident, including, but not limited to: the number of vehicle collisions a day, the number of vehicle collision injuries, the number of driver and passenger deaths involved in vehicle accidents, alcohol-related crashes, crashes involving pedestrians and cyclists, accidents which occurred during the daylight and night hours, the amount of economic losses as a result of vehicle collisions and fatalities and injuries by age and sex.
In 2015, there were 811 fatalities due to motor vehicle crashes. This statistic includes drivers and passengers as well as pedestrians and cyclists involved in the accident. This number is up over 100 people from 2014, in which 709 were killed in vehicle collisions.
The number of total vehicle crashes in 2015 was 116,609. Injury crashes accounted for 30.99 percent of crashes, while fatal crashes accounted for less than one percent. Vehicle accidents involving property damage only, made up 68.31 percent of accidents. Of all pedestrian crashes, 11.44 percent were fatal, while 1.95 percent of cyclist crashes were fatal. Additionally, alcohol-related crashes accounted for 4.24 percent of all crashes and 32.80 percent of all fatal crashes. The total of vehicle crashes resulted in a $3.817 billion in economic losses to Arizona.
This boils down to approximately 146.62 people injured and 2.45 people killed in Arizona due to vehicle collisions each day; or one person injured every 9.82 minutes and killed every 9.79 hours.
