Young teen crash risk by vehicle type

The Highway Loss Data Institute compared collision claim rates by vehicle type and size with age group. It was determined that teen drivers, 15-17 years old, are twice as likely as drivers, 35-50 years old, to crash driving small two- and four-door passenger cars. In conjunction with HLDI's study, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) analyzed the Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS) for fatalities by vehicle type and size. This analysis concluded that younger drivers were more often involved in fatal car crashes and fatalities occurred in small cars more often than any other vehicle.
