Car Accidents in Philadelphia
Whether you make the city of Philadelphia your home, commute in to the city for work, or visit occasionally for one of the cultural, historical, or simply fun attractions the city has to offer you may wonder about the safety of Philadelphia roads. Car accidents on Philadelphia roads are, unfortunately, not uncommon.
In 2009, the most recent year for which data is available, there were 10,688 crashes in Philadelphia. 84 of those accidents were fatal and 8,397 resulted in injuries. In other words, on average, 23 people are injured every day in Philadelphia car accidents. The number of Philadelphia accidents in 2009 was slightly higher than the number of crashes in 2008 and so too was the fatality rate.
While Philadelphia is one of the smallest counties geographically in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, it is also one of the most densely populated and one where many accidents occur. Car accidents in Philadelphia may involve one or more vehicles, pedestrians, bicyclists, or others who are sharing the busy city streets.
