Ontario residents may be surprised to learn that, over the last 10 years, twice as many men have died in car accidents than women. According to the data, which was released on March 23, more than 2,300 men were killed while approximately 1,140 women died.
The data was taken between 2005 and 2014. The total number of deaths caused by car collisions within this time span was reported to be 3,504 individuals. It was determined that, of all of those who were killed, only 450 motorists were driving safely when they became involved in car accidents. Seventy percent of those killed were driving while 23 percent were passengers in vehicles involved in crashes. Additionally, seven percent of the fatalities were pedestrians. The data also revealed that men between the ages of 25 and 34 were most at risk for dying in car-related accidents.
