Report lists 10 cities that experience the most car crashes

The transportation nonprofit Go Safe Labs has released a report listing the 10 cities with the highest car crash numbers in 2019 as well as the 10 most accident-prone regions in the U.S. Researchers hope that as residents of Montana and across the U.S. consider the lists, they can practice safer driving.

First of all, there were 953,630 car crashes nationwide in 2019, which was 6.8% more than in 2018. Of these crashes, 22,188 took place in Houston, Texas; 21,818 in Charlotte, North Carolina; and 19,660 in Los Angeles, California. In fourth and fifth place were two other cities in Texas: Austin with 16,635 accidents and Dallas with 14,685. Raleigh came in sixth with 12,846 crashes despite actually seeing a 25.5% decrease in crashes in 2019. The list ended with Oklahoma City, Baton Rouge, Nashville and Phoenix.

The second list, that of the most accident-prone regions, did not involve any of the cities mentioned above. Interestingly, the city of Greenville, South Carolina, appeared three times on the list, including in the number one spot. That was the Pelham Road Exit on Interstate 85, which saw a startling 404 accidents in 2019. Three locations in or around New York City were included on the list as were regions in Portland, Minneapolis and Miami.

Most car collisions are the result of unsafe conduct on the part of one or more of the drivers. To file a claim in the wake of a crash, victims will likely have to determine the other side's negligence. After that, they have to strive for a reasonable amount in damages from the auto insurance companies. These can be tough to do on one's own, so hiring a lawyer may be wise. Personal injury lawyers might have third-party investigators to assist with cases.
