Maryland Auto Accident Death Rates Stay Lower Than National Average

By Alpert Schreyer on June 26, 2012

The rate of deaths in Maryland car accidents have been lower than the national average for several years and continue to stay low, according to research from the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration.

Since 2003, the average yearly rate of lives lost in Maryland car accidents has been about 11 fatalities per 100,000 people, or about 1.10 people per 100 million vehicle miles traveled. Nationwide, however, the rates have been higher: about 14 deaths per 100,000 people or about 1.4 deaths per 100 million vehicle miles traveled.

In 2007, the rate of car accident deaths in both Maryland and the United States hit a historic low of 10.9 people per 100,000 in Maryland and 13.61 people per 100,000 nationwide.

Within Maryland, Prince George’s County auto accidents typically see the largest number of fatalities, averaging about 120 deaths each year. Baltimore and Anne Arundel Counties follow, seeing about 60 deaths per year on average. Cecil County and Carroll County, by contrast, tend to see the lowest rates of deaths from car accidents, at about 20 per year per county. Overall, about 650 Maryland motorists lose their lives on state roads each year.

Even one fatal car accident is one too many, especially when it harms someone you love. If you or someone you care about has been injured or lost in an accident, the experienced Maryland fatal car accident attorneys at Alpert Schreyer can help.
