- Texas DOT - Crash Reports and Records: There is no better place place than directly from the DOT for an official copy of your accident report. The Texas DOT is one of the (if not THE) most advanced State DOT’s in the United States. Where most other States in the US have no centralized data policy or standards for their accident reports, Texas has lead the way in centralizing and providing online access to its citizens.
History of Accidents in Missouri City
With one notable exception, Missouri City has been quite consistent in its accident report rates for the past five years.
The first year of our record, 2014, saw the lowest number of accidents (1,053 in total). That number shot up by more than 200 accidents in 2015 for a total of 1,289 accidents. Then, in 2016, that number went up by almost another 100 for a total of 1,377 accidents that year.
In 2017, the number of accidents went down, but not at the level of the previous years (1,331 accidents for the whole year). Finally, 2018 saw a slight increase to 1,357, but the increase is small compared to the leaps seen from 2014 to 2016.
However, given that the accident rates first spiked in 2015, there is a likely explanation for the shift.
- Streets and traffic signals
- Drainage and detention
- Fire stations
- Water and wastewater treatment plans
Thanks to this plan, residents have seen major reconstruction projects on roads all over the city for the last five years. Major construction like this forces residents who are used to taking the same route every day to venture onto new roads. Some roads may not be used to these levels of traffic.
When people aren't driving in their comfort zone, trying to make sense of an unfamiliar area, they're more likely to get into accidents.
Fort Bend County saw a similar rise in the number of accidents over the last four years, though the increases in Fort Bend as a whole were more consistent (and large) than Missouri City. There were 7,993 accidents in 2014, 8,814 accidents in 2015, 9,442 accidents in 2016, and 9,602 accidents in 2017, respectively.
Technically, Missouri City is on the outer edge of Fort Bend County, so their Capital Improvement Program cannot be wholly credited with the spike in traffic accidents in the county from 2015 onwards.
However, Missouri City is the second-largest city in the county (after Sugar Land), accounting for a significant portion of the county population and traffic. So Missouri City's construction may be somewhat to blame, though Sugar Land likely played a large role in its own right.

History of Fatalities in Missouri City
Given the fluctuations in the number of overall accidents in Missouri City, the number of fatal accidents in the area were startlingly consistent.
In fact, they were so consistent that they were identical--just three recorded fatal accidents for each of the last five years.
The number of fatal accidents in Fort Bend County was also surprisingly consistent in the last four years, with 34 fatal accidents in 2014, 37 fatal accidents in 2015, 36 fatal accidents in 2016, and 39 fatal accidents in 2017.
That’s good news for the residents of Missouri City--the number of accidents may change, but in terms of the level of recklessness, it appears that the neighbors in Missouri City are reliable.
This also makes sense on a map--the most accidents occurred on I-69 and the Sam Houston Tollway, both high-traffic areas with a higher probability of accidents. If you take these roads to work, make sure to drive with care.
