History of Accidents in Grapevine

The residents of Grapevine have had a few ups and downs in the past several years. What's interesting is that the ups and downs are significant changes from one year to the next.

In 2014, the start of our record, Grapevine saw 1,607 accidents, the second-lowest number in our record. The next year saw the largest year-to-year increase, jumping by nearly 150 accidents for a total of 1,755 accidents in 2015.

The next three years seemed to hover around the same set point. In 2016, there was a minor decrease in accidents to 1,714 accidents, but not enough to be enormous. In 2017, the accident rate went back up again to 1,750.

But then the accident rate plummeted again to numbers comparable to 2014, with a total of 1,605 accidents in 2018.

So, what changed in 2015 to drive the accident rate up? And what changed to drive it back down again in 2018?

One possible explanation is the DFW Connector Project, in which the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) and Northgate Constructors designed and constructed $1 billion in improvements to SH 114 and SH 121. It also included nearly $90 million in improvements to Grapevine Mills Parkway.

Construction on the initial project was completed in 2013, but construction on Grapevine Mills Parkway began in late 2013 and was scheduled to finish in 2017.

However, budgetary constraints caused some of the construction to be deferred until later in the project--until 2015 and 2016, when accident rates spiked in Grapevine.

It's also important to remember that Grapevine is a suburb of Fort Worth and Dallas and contains a larger portion of the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport than other cities. So if traffic was disrupted in Grapevine or in nearby Dallas or Fort Worth, the traffic likely spills over.

History of Fatalities in Grapevine

Fortunately for Grapevine residents, their fatal accident count was not consistent with their overall accident rate. If anything, the fatal accident rate was quite low, given the number of accidents for each year.

In 2014, there were just five fatal accidents. The next year, 2015, saw the most accidents in our record, with seven fatal accidents. But the year after that didn't have any fatal accidents at all.

Sadly, Grapevine's luck didn't hold out in 2017 and 2018, which saw two and five fatal accidents, respectively.

Tarrant County, home of Grapevine, was much more consistent in their fatal accident trends: a steady increase. There were 139 fatalities in 2014, 140 fatalities in 2015, 160 fatalities in 2016, and 168 fatalities in 2017.

Tarrant County is more in keeping with national crash fatality trends, which have been increasing annually for the past several years.

Nationally, 32,675 people died in 2014, 35,092 people died in 2015, 37,461 people died in 2016, and 37,133 people died in 2017.

That's a trend that doesn't seem to make sense. Cars are getting safer every year, but fatal accident rates are still rising.

One explanation for this phenomenon is that people aren't driving any safer, despite the new and improved safety features added to their cars. And not everyone trades in their car for more safety features, either.

Either way, more roadwork is just around the corner for Grapevine. Hopefully, residents are careful to drive safe and be aware of their surroundings in order to keep fatal accidents to a minimum.
