New York State Personal Injury Accident Statistics and Data
The New York State Department of Motor Vehicles (NYSDMV) always makes sure that the statistical data about accident, injury, driver, vehicle registrations, etc… that they provide on their website is accurate, detailed, authentic, and useful for any and all who choose to read and or use it.
The crash data are compiled from the crash reports submitted to the NYSDMV by motorists and police agencies. The crash data are released after a complete calendar year is compiled. The data for the years 1995 – 2012 are currently available. These pie chart visualizations that we created below are created using stats and data from the most recent year of data, 2012.
Below are three different pie chart visualizations of the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles Statewide Statistical and Data Summary of Motor Vehicle Crashes in 2012. These three pie charts offer these visualizations of New York 2012 accident data to help highlight some important, and key findings in the data. We wanted to offer people a chance to comprehend some of the more important and interesting data through illustrations and visual learning.
This first pie chart visual illustration highlights the total number and percent of the five different types of non-fatal, injury automobile related accident victims during 2012 in the state of New York. The five types of victims featured in this graphic are: Bicyclists Injured, Pedestrians Injured, Drivers Injured, Passengers Injured, and other.
This second pie chart is very similar to the first one except instead of highlighting the total number and percent of injured auto collision victims, this graphic illustrates the total number and percent of the different types of fatal automobile crash victims who lost their life as a result of the crash. The victims of these collisions are the same as above: Bicyclists, Pedestrians, Drivers, and Passengers, except the main difference being that this visual illustrates the total number of fatalities caused by 2012 auto accidents in New York.
This graphic visually illustrates the New York 2012 auto accident severity ranging from “fatal”, to “Property Damage Only Accidents”. Specifically the severity of how the auto collisions are classified are as follows: Fatal Accidents, Serious Injury Accident, Moderate Injury Accident, Minor Injury Accident, Unknown Severity of Accident, and Property Damage Only Accidents. This visualization highlights the total number of each one of these types of accidents and the percent of each type during 2012 in New York.
Also here is a severity key that the NYSDMV offers to better explain how they come up with their accident severity ratings:
Injury Severity Key for Summary Tables
“K” Fatal injuries include deaths which occur within thirty days following injury in a motor vehicle crash.
“A” Severe injuries include skull fractures, internal injuries, broken or distorted limbs, unconsciousness, severe lacerations, and unable to leave the scene without assistance.
“B” Moderate injuries include visible injuries such as a “lump” on the head, abrasions, and minor lacerations.
“C” Slight injuries include hysteria, nausea, momentary unconsciousness, and complaint of pain without visible signs of injury.
