Ventura County Motorcycle Accidents Statistics
Motorcycle accidents are not as common as car accidents, but they are far more likely to cause injury, disability and death. Motorcyclists are uniquely vulnerable in accidents due to their lack of protection. Even when they are travelling at low speeds, an impact between a motorcyclist and a larger vehicle could result in death or disability.
Between 2000 and 2007, there were 80 deaths attributed to motorcycle accidents in Ventura County. Just in the last few years, 315 people were injured and 20 people were killed due to motorcycle accidents. In 2011 alone, 100 people were sent to the hospital due to motorcycle accidents. Each of these statistics represents an individual whose life was changed forever. In some cases, their families were left behind to make sense of the tragedies.
