According to accident reports, the lowest accident rate occurred in 2014, with 2,863 accidents in total. The highest accident rate occurred the following year, with 3,018 accidents. After that, the next three years fluctuated around 3,000 accidents on average, with 3,009 accidents in 2016, 2,966 accidents in 2017, and 3,004 accidents in 2018. The sharp rise in reported accidents corresponds with a larger nationwide trend that began in 2015 and continued through 2018. With a recovering economy beginning in 2015 and relative economic steadiness and growth through 2018, the unemployment rate went down, which meant more people had to commute to work each day—directly impacting the probability of accidents. Add in cheaper gas prices, and you get years where people are spending more and more time on the road. This, in turn, creates a higher chance of accidents simply because there are more cars on the road to get in accidents.
Pharr’s accident trends are also roughly in keeping with accident trends in Hidalgo County, which had 12,839 accidents in 2014, 13,560 accidents in 2015, 14,892 accidents in 2016, and 14,334 accidents in 2017. Notice the uptick in accidents from 2014 to 2015 and a sharp rise in accidents from 2015 to 2016 followed by relative stasis from 2016 to 2017.
The U.S. economy took a hit at the tail end of 2015, with recovery in 2016 and relative stability from 2016 into 2017.
The years 2014 and 2016 saw the second-highest accident numbers (six accidents each). There was a sharp decrease between them in 2015 (two accidents) with a minor increase in 2017 (eight accidents). The lowest accident rate was in 2018, with just one fatal accident in Pharr for the whole year.
Given that Pharr’s population hovers around an estimated 79,487, even the highest number of fatal accidents (eight in 2017) is still only a fatality rate of about 1%.
It’s also a remarkably low number of fatal accidents given the number of accidents that occurred each year—six fatal accidents out of 2,863 in 2014, two fatal accidents out of 3,018 in 2015, six fatal accidents out of 3,009 in 2016, eight fatal accidents out of 2,966 in 2017, and just one fatal accident out of 3,004 in 2018.
There were, however, a far greater number of non-incapacitating injuries resulting from car accidents. There were 175 in 2014, 185 in 2015, 136 in 2016, and 210 in 2017 respectively.
While there isn’t a sure way to predict how 2019 will unfold for Pharr’s drivers, it will be a year with a relatively low risk of fatal car crashes if history is any indication. Drivers should be more worried about injuries sustained in these accidents—and possible damage sustained to their car.
