Dear Andrew,

 

Thank you for your query:

 

Could you please tell me how many 17-24 yr olds were killed in car crashes
in 2014. Could you please give both the number and as a percentage of the
total

 

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
[1]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 [2]RAS41001, this contains data from 2006 -2014.

 

Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any further questions.

 

Kind regards,

 

Alice
