South Carolina Ranks High on Vehicle Collision Deaths, But Early 2020 is Looking Better


March 11, 2020

SOUTH CAROLINA - There have been at least 82 fatalities on South Carolina roads this year, according to THESTATE.COM. In 2018, South Carolina was found to be one of the worst states in the nation for fatal car crashes. In a report that looked at fatalities in each state per population size, South Carolina came in third. According to the study, the state has 20.5 car crash-related fatalities per every 100,000 people. The only other states with higher numbers of reported fatalities were Mississippi and Alabama.*

While South Carolina already lost at least 82 people in fatal vehicle related incidents in 2020, the numbers indicate a significant decline when compared to the same time measured in 2019. 

In 2019, a total of 1,036 people tragically lost their lives on the roads in South Carolina. While the number is dropping, there is still room for improvement.
