Regional Crash Fact Sheets
From 2009 to 2011, a total of 111,504 motor vehicle crashes were reported in MORPC’s transportation planning area, which includes Franklin and Delaware counties, and portions of Licking and Fairfield counties.
During the same time frame, 293 people were killed and an additional 41,000 were injured.
On average, 37 people are injured every day in a traffic crash, and a person is killed every 3.75 days.
Crashes involving a pedestrian or bicyclist account for only 2% of all crashes, but almost 20% of those resulting in a fatality.
Although the number of crashes remains too high, the 2009 to 2011 total represents a 4% decline compared to the total between 2007 and 2009. Fatal crashes also declined by 3.1%.
Regional Crash Fact Sheets cover a variety of crash types and related information on fatal crashes, serious crashes, pedestrians, bicyclists, motorcyclists, truck drivers, public transit, rear-end and work zone crashes, and driver behavior trends.
