San Francisco has its share of automobile accidents. Auto accidents are the leading cause of death and injury in the United States. According to National Highway Traffic safety Administration statistics, there were nearly 6,024,248 car accidents in the United States in 2007. These car accidents caused 2,491,000 injuries and 41,059 fatalities. About 115 people die every day in vehicle crashes in the United States -- one death every 13 minutes.
