Car accidents, whether minor or deadly, can have catastrophic consequences for both the driver and anyone else involved. When a teenager, or multiple teens, are involved in the accident, it may be traumatic for them and impact their future. Most people assume that teenagers are most often involved in car crashes because they are the most inexperienced drivers; however, this is not always the case. Statistics show that while teenagers do not drive as often as other age groups, their risk of fatality in car accidents is higher. Below are statistics and other information about teenage car accidents.
