In any given year approximately 100,000 car crashes occur in the State of Washington, according to the 2015 Annual Collision Summary. According to this document, over 40,000 of those collisions took place in Normandy Park and other King County communities. The Collision Summary broke down these 40,962 collisions as follows:
100 of these collisions involved at least one fatality (this number represented one-fifth of all fatal traffic crashes in Washington that year);
490 of these collisions were classified as “serious injury collisions” – about one-fourth of all such collisions statewide; and
Over 12,500 of these collisions were described as “minor injury collisions,” which was about one-third of the total number of minor injury collisions in Washington.
