The Trust For America’s Health, a non-profit organization for disease-control, recently took a look at the various causes of injury and death in each state. Within that report, the group analyzed vehicle fatalities.
The numbers are quite sobering. Not only did the organization look at the average deaths in each state, but also the costs associated with health care and work loss due to auto accidents.
Take a look at the list of the top ten most dangerous states to drive in according to their average deaths per 100,000 people. Remember, no matter which state you drive in, buckle your seat belt. The group advocates that this simple task is the most useful preventative measure we can take in cutting down driving injuries and deaths.
