What Age Group Is Most Commonly Involved in Car Accidents?

What Age Group Is Most Commonly Involved in Car Accidents?

Unfortunately, car accidents are often the result of a driver being careless, reckless, or negligent. These behaviors leave other motorists with serious, life-altering injuries. Sometimes, car accidents caused by negligence can even be fatal. While any driver can be negligent and cause an accident, research shows that certain age groups may pose more risks to other motorists than others.

By the Numbers: Car Accidents & Driver Age

According to 2015 data from the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, drivers who are 16 or 17 years old are most often involved in car accidents. In this age group, drivers were involved in 361 injury crashes and 3.75 deadly crashes per 100 million miles driven, AAA research found. Compare that to drivers between the ages of 60 and 69, who were involved in 67 injury crashes and 1.04 fatal crashes per 100 million miles driven.

Generally, the younger the driver, the more likely they will be involved in a car accident. However, crash rates appear to increase around age 70, with 80+ drivers having a hand in 131 injury crashes and 3.85 deadly crashes per 100 million miles driven.
