A pleasant drive can quickly—and unexpectedly—turn into hardship or tragedy. This is especially true in South Carolina, which ranks eighth among all states for traffic deaths per 100,000 residents.
Some other startling car accident statistics for South Carolina:
- A collision every 4.4 minutes
- An injury collision every 15.4 minutes
- A fatal collision every 11.6 hours
- $3.05 billion of lost productivity, property damage, and medical costs annually
Richland County ranks third in the state for total collisions, which results, in part, from its high population. Most car accidents in the Columbia occur during the evening rush hour.
