History of Accidents in Midland

Midland, the West Texas city with a population of around 134,000, is smack dab in Oil Country and it shows. Accident volume in Midland over the past few years has been slightly higher when compared to other cities of around the same size, with annual counts ranging between 3,249 at the lowest and 4,405 at the highest, but this isn't what makes Midland stand out from the crowd; instead, it's the year-on-year difference in accident rates that bear some investigating.

Unlike national averages from 2014 through 2018, Midland did not experience a low number of accidents in 2014, a sharp increase in 2015 and 2016, and then a slow decline through 2017 and 2018. In fact, this Texas city had a nearly 100% inverse trend instead, as Midland started with 4,052 annual accidents in 2014 but saw this number drop to 3,604 in 2015. Then, as if this wasn't already anomalous enough, accident rates went down even further in 2016 to a five-year low of 3,249.

At this point, the rest of the country experienced a respite from high accident rates, as 2017 and 2018 had accident volumes that declined year-on-year. Not in Midland, though; instead, accident volumes shot back up, first to 3,746 and then even higher to 4,405. This left Midland with thoroughly nothing in common with the rest of the country except that its 2018 accident volume was higher than its 2014 figures.

History of Fatalities in Midland

Midland's fatality history is likewise skewed. While 2016 saw fatalities peak from 2014, which had the least number of fatalities across the US for the 5-year period, this was the deadliest year in Midland with 24 annual fatalities. For the next four years, fatality rates were significantly lower, staying at 11 for two consecutive years before rising just slightly to 14 and 13 in 2017 and 2018 respectively.

While these rates are just as backward when viewed against national averages, they otherwise make sense when looked at in conjunction with just Midland's accident volume rates. Years with high annual accident numbers tend to have high fatalities and vice versa, showing a clear correlation between the two, which is to be expected. This shows that there's a logic to Midland's accident figures, even if they don't make sense from a national viewpoint.

Whatever may be happening in Midland, the city certainly has its own unique problems. Research has shown that cities in the Permian Basin like Midland have a very high per capita DUI rate, equating to more than 6 annual DUI-related deaths per 100,000 residents, even while cities with larger populations like Austin and Houston might have higher overall DUI-related crash volumes.
