Included in those statistics are some 4,000 collisions which involve serious injury or death, just inside L.A. city limits. Unfortunately, the grim statistics don’t end with these figures. In excess of 50,000 people are injured in vehicle collisions in Los Angeles County each year -- even more incidents cause property damage, about 80,000 annually. L.A. ranks second in the nation for pedestrian deaths, and, the state of California experiences more bicycle and motor vehicle collisions than practically any other state in the nation.
More than 5,000 car-bike accidents occur in the county annually, according to California Highway Patrol data. The leading cause of these accidents are motorists failing to yield.
