Understanding Maryland Car Accident Statistics

By Alpert Schreyer on July 17, 2012

Maryland car accidents are the leading cause of death among Maryland residents ages 4 to 34 years, according to the Maryland Department of Transportation’s Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA). Each year, more lives are lost in Maryland from car accidents than from homicides.

The MVA tracks motor vehicle accident, injury, and death statistics each year in Maryland. In recent years, Maryland has seen an average of 635 deaths in car accidents each year and over 55,000 injuries in car accidents. Another 66,000 accidents each year, on average, cause property damage usually to vehicles, but fences, posts, mailboxes, and other objects can also be damaged if a car hits them during an accident.

The number of crashes in Maryland each year has been decreasing since 2003, but the number of deaths and injuries has not always kept pace. For instance, while the number of accidents in 2007 was nearly 1 percent lower than in 2003, and while the number of personal injuries suffered in car accidents dropped over 10 percent in that time, the number of deaths has fluctuated wildly – from a high of 651 fatalities in 2003 and again in 2006, to a low of 614 deaths in 2005 and 615 in 2007.
