With driving such a prevalent part of everyday life, chances of getting into an accident are very real. In 2016, about 15 motor vehicle collisions happened every hour according to statistics from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation. These crashes involved 1 out of every 43 Pennsylvanians, with 1 out of every 154 people sustaining injuries.
The data only includes accidents that people reported, so the numbers may be even higher. Despite the risk, most drivers do not think twice before hitting the road.
