Crash Facts & Statistics

PennDOT is committed to making Pennsylvania's roadways safer for travelers of all modes. While fatalities are trending downward over time, we'll continue to work on engineering, education and enforcement initiatives with our many partners because even one fatality is too many.

In 2017, Pennsylvania saw the lowest number of traffic fatalities on record — 1,137.

Some common highway safety focus areas and types of roadway users are featured in our 2015 Yearly Traffic Fatalities Summary (PDF Version). Summary graphics of crash numbers are also broken down by county.

The public can access commonly requested crash and fatality information as well as create their own custom searches with the Pennsylvania Crash Information Tool.

Below are our annual Crash Facts & Statistics reports. All files are in PDF format unless otherwise noted.
