Crash Facts & Statistics

In 2019, Pennsylvania’s traffic fatalities dropped to 1,059, the lowest since record keeping began in 1928. In 2020, even with less roadway traffic, fatalities increased to 1,129. In 2021, and in line with trends seen across the nation, traffic fatalities increased again, jumping by about 9% to 1,230.

PennDOT is committed to making our roadways safe for travelers of all modes. Early crash data estimates are showing 2022 traffic fatalities may be down slightly over 2021. We’ll continue to work on engineering, education, and enforcement initiatives with our many partners because these numbers are still too high. Even one fatality is one too many.

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