Car Accident Injuries & Fatalities in Sacramento Area & Beyond
The California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) publishes collision rankings to show how many traffic accidents have occurred in each city and county in California and how they compare to cities and counties of a similar size. The most recent OTS rankings available for the region show some troubling statistics.
According to the 2014 OTS rankings, the region ranked 44 out of 58 counties for traffic collisions, with 863 total injuries and fatalities. This ranking shows that the county is one of the lowest in overall injuries and fatalities, but when you consider the county’s rankings for alcohol-involved accidents, the ranking shoots up to 10 out of 58. Worse yet, the county ranks third in the state for injuries and fatalities categorized as “had been drinking” in all age groups through 34 years old.
