Accidental Opioid Deaths Top Car Accident Deaths for the First Time

Deaths from accidental opioid overdoses now top car accidents for the first time, according to a report from the National Safety Council.

“Data, collected in 2017, shows Americans have a one in 96 chance of dying from an opioid overdose. The probability of dying in a motor vehicle crash is one in 103,” reports Fox News.

“Opioid pain relievers are the most fatally abused drugs and they’re entirely legal. Roughly 60 people die every day as a result of overdoses from opioids – that’s 22,630 Americans,” Fox adds. “To put that in perspective, that’s roughly the size of the entire population of Auburn Hills.”
