In 2014, there were 199 17-24yr olds car users killed in reported personal
injury road accidents in Great Britain. This was 11% of all reported road
accident fatalities (1775 killed). For more detail have a look at table
RAS30028. This table has fatality figures for each type of road user
(eg.car user, motorcycle user etc) by age.
If you are particularly interested in fatalities in accidents involving
young car drivers. There were 342 fatalities in reported accidents
involving a young car driver (aged 17-24) in 2014, this accounted for 19%
of all reported road accident fatalities. For previous year’s figures have
a look at table RAS41001, this contains data from 2006 -2014.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any further questions.
