2013 Crash Factoids

In 2013, we took the lowest number of crash reports going all the way back to the last 15 years. The numbers are continuing to trend downward and that's something we can all be proud of.

During the year there were a total of 4,293 crashes that occurred in the City of Overland Park. That number showed a slight drop from the previous year (4,330), but even more encouraging was the reduction in the number of injury accidents from 837 in 2012, to 807 in 2013.

 Interesting Note: More crashes occurred on Fridays (757) than on any other day of the week, with Thursday coming in a close second with 738. The least number of crashes occurred on Sundays (352).

September (391) and May (389) rated the highest in relation to the number of crashes taken on a monthly basis during 2013.
