Over 33,000 people suffer fatal injuries in a car accident every year, according to the NHTSA. For those people between the ages of 1 and 54, in fact, car crashes are a leading cause of death. It’s important to do everything you can to minimize your risks of being involved in an accident but certain cars are always more involved in deadly crashes than others.
The recent study completed by Value Penguin Insurance looked at data from 2013 to 2018 and found that by analyzing over 11,000 fatal accidents, one car turned out more than any other one. That car is a Ford F series. It was involved in over 10,845 fatal crashes across the five-year period evaluated by the study. In 2018, more than 900,000 versions of this vehicle were sold.
Some of the other vehicles that showed up and had high numbers of fatal accidents included a Chevrolet Silverado, Ram Pickups, Honda Accords, Toyota Camrys, Honda Civics, Toyota Corollas and Ford Explorers. However, it’s important to note that car accidents can and do happen in any different situation with various vehicles.
