iStock_000005321042_Medium-750x375.jpgAccording to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, 32,719 people died in car wrecks in the United States in 2013. The Tennessee Governor's Highway Safety Office reports that 995 people died in car wrecks in Tennessee in 2013.

The number and types of car wreck fatalities differ widely across the 50 states. Traffic fatality data is often compared per person and per mile traveled to account for population differences in each state. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety publishes information about deadly car wrecks in each state here. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration also produces reports on deaths caused by car wrecks that can be seen here.

Statistics for traffic fatalities in Tennessee can be found on the Tennessee Traffic Safety Website.

Since 2012, the Governor's Highway Safety Office and the Tennessee Department of Transportation have posted the number of car wreck fatalities on the electronic message boards that are posted above many Interstates in Tennessee.

For Americans 1 to 44 years of age, accidental injuries are the number-one killer. People in that age group are more likely to die from an injury-such as a car wreck or another accident-than from any other cause.
