The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation has published yearly data as of June 30th, 2023, regarding the total reported crashes so far this year. The “Pennsylvania Crash Information Tool” with the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation is public for web users to access and highlights important data such as total fatalities of motorcyclists, bicyclists, pedestrians, etc., in Pennsylvania (PA).

As of the end of June, there have been 538 total crash fatalities in PA. This number is frightening as there were a total of 533 crash fatalities last year, meaning that just halfway through the year the numbers have exceeded previous yearly totals. Statistics show that there have been 75 pedestrian fatalities, 11 bicyclist fatalities, 9 work zone-related deaths, and 95 motorcyclist deaths. It is important to note that the data displayed through the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation is solely based on police reports that have been received and processed. Since there is a delay in receiving crash reports from the police investigative processes, the data is not complete and is subject to changes. This shared data ultimately accounts for only the accidents that have been reported. This means that the numbers for these statistics are actually significantly larger, being that many crashes may not have been reported.

Vehicle accidents are the leading cause of death in the United States. With 43k deaths per year, crashes are far from uncommon. That is why it is important to know your options.
