According to the folks at Zutobi Driver Education…
- First place for the worst? Wyoming. Plenty of wide open spaces and unfortunately the highest fatal crash rate of 55 fatal crashes per 100,000 people and 320 people who were involved in fatal collisions.
- Second place was New Mexico with 48 fatal crashes per 100,000 people and an eye-popping 1,010 people involved in fatal crashes. The report blamed New Mexico’s having one of the nation’s highest drunk driving death rates.
- Third was Mississippi with 45.7 fatal crashes per 100,000 and 1,355 people involved in fatal crashes.
The ranking was based on the rate of fatal crashes per 100,000 people and number of people involved in fatal crashes in 2019 for 50 states, Washington D.C and Puerto Rico. The number of people involved in fatal crashes is higher than the number of traffic fatalities because it counts all people in the collision, including survivors.
