Salt Lake City car crashes cause more injury, death, and economic loss than any other crime or civic issue

Motor vehicle accidents are a common occurrence in Salt Lake City and across Salt Lake County. Many crashes are completely avoidable, caused by drunk drivers or distracted drivers. Whatever the cause, car accidents are a major safety and economic issue for the Salt Lake City community.

Get information on car crashes from the Salt Lake City Police Department

The Salt Lake City Police Department offers information on accidents, and also provides information on filing a police report

This department is a good resource to get information after a car crash.

Utah's Department of Motor Vehicles provides information on traffic and safety laws.

When an accident is serious or fatal, it is crucial to find a Salt Lake City auto accident lawyer

Hi! My name is Katie, and i'm with the newspaper at my highschool, hillcrest. I am currently writing an article on Teen car crashes in Utah for the month of October, and i was wondering if there is any way i could get the statistics for car crashes? If you could respond as quickly as possible, it would be highly appreciated :) Thanks for your time! Have a great day!

Hi Katie! The best way to try to get this information is to go the the federal government site NHTSA. I was able to find this document that lists fatal accidents by state, but their site is full of really great information. I wish you the best of luck! Ingrid Accident Data Center

Katie - another great resource is through thte CDC website.  If you're looking for an angle for your article I would suggest emphasizing the fact that teens are twice as likely to be involved in a fatal crash with the primary reason being inexperience and speed.  Good luck in helping your classmates be safe on the roads!
