2021 Quarter 3 (July – September) Crash Report
We are over halfway through 2021, which means it is time for another quarterly crash report. This report examines crashes from July 2021 to September 2021 on roads within the City of St. Louis and St. Louis County. The report compares the number of bicycle, pedestrian, and vehicular crashes during a three month period to the same time period in the previous year.
When comparing July to September 2021 to July to September 2020, we’ve seen a slight decrease in total pedestrian and vehicular crashes in St. Louis City, with a light increase of pedestrian crashes & deaths, and total vehicular crashes in St. Louis County. When looking at specific corridors and areas in the City we saw decreases in pedestrian crashes along Kingshighway Blvd, N. Florissant Ave, and throughout Downtown St. Louis. In the County, while we have seen an increase in the total amount of pedestrian crashes and deaths, there has been a decrease in crashes specifically along Chambers Rd, a traditionally high crash corridor (6 crashes from July to September 2020 – 1 crash in July to September 2021.) It should be noted that there was a large jump in bike crashes in these months, compared to previous months of the year (Almost 60% of bike crashes in the City occurred from July to September. The rise is most likely contributed to the nicer weather in the summer months.
