Injuries in Hit-and-Run Crash

Washington’s road accident rate continues to increase, rather than decrease, despite the additional safety features on newer vehicle models.

The increasing crash rate reflects that auto accidents are a major public health threat. They are a leading cause of death for individuals ages 5-64.

As a matter of fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), two out of three motorists will be involved in an injury accident during their life.
