  • Abstract:
    This booklet is published by the Missouri State Highway Patrol as an aid to persons who are interested in the traffic accident problem in Missouri. It contains information which provides for a comprehensive look at the Statewide accident problems as experienced in 2004. The Missouri State Highway Patrol is the central traffic accident data collection agency for the State of Missouri. Data on both rural and urban traffic crashes is made available to this agency. Law enforcement agencies throughout the State provide the Highway Patrol with copies of their accident reports. All reports of traffic accidents including those investigated by the Missouri State Highway Patrol are tabulated and analyzed by this agency. It is thus due, in part, to the continued cooperation of these law enforcement agencies that a meaningful picture of the statewide accident experience is available to interested persons. Here at a glance are some interesting statistics found in this booklet: In 2004 there were 1,130 persons killed in traffic accidents in the State of Missouri, 102 (8%) less than in 2003. There was a decrease (.2%) in total accidents statewide compared to 2003. Speed and too fast for conditions were the lead Probable Contributing Circumstances in fatal accidents. About 11% of all fatal accidents involve drinking/drugs. About 45% (504) of all persons killed in Missouri traffic crashes in 2004 were in the 16-35 age group. The age group most overrepresented in Missouri fatal traffic crashes is 16-20 (186 killed - 16% of the total). It is interesting to note that in known cases only about 11% of all traffic crashes occurred during inclement weather (rain, snow, sleet, freezing rain, fog or mist). Of all traffic crashes reported statewide, over 74% were property damage only. Over 72% of all traffic crashes occurred during the daylight hours and over 75% occurred on dry pavement. Over 56% of all fatal Missouri traffic crashes involved only one vehicle. Jackson County recorded the most traffic fatalities with 77.
