Most people get into their vehicles every day to drive to work or to run an errand without ever thinking about how many auto accidents occur or just how many are fatal. Watch this video to find out about local auto accident statistics in Sarasota and Manatee counties.

Obviously, car accidents in Florida occur each day throughout the state, but not every crash involves a fatality. The accident rate for fatal car crashes in Sarasota and Manatee counties are about one-half of a percent. According to the Federal Highway Administration, there are 1.25 deaths for 100,000 accidents that occur in the state of Florida. While the numbers have stayed somewhat constant over the last couple years, fatalities among certain groups such as bicyclists, motorcyclists, and teen drivers have increased.

Unfortunately, Florida still ranks as one of the top three states in our nation for deadly car accidents.
