A National Look at the Monetary Costs of Fatal Automobile Collisions

In 2005, motor vehicle crash deaths resulted in $41 billion in lost work and medical expenses. In the United States, over 30,000 people are killed in crashes each year.  A new data analysis by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) examined the costs of crash deaths by each state and found that half of all costs were found in ten states.

According to the CDC, the ten states with the highest medical and work loss costs are: California ($4.16 billion), Texas ($3.50 billion), Florida ($3.16 billion), Georgia ($1.55 billion), Pennsylvania ($1.52 billion), North Carolina ($1.50 billion), New York ($1.33 billion), Illinois ($1.32 billion), Ohio ($1.23 billion), and Tennessee ($1.15 billion).  The costs for each state and CDC’s recommendations for saving lives and money are available at www.CDC.gov.
