2022 Q2 Crash Report
We’re halfway through the year, which means it’s time for the second quarterly Crash Report of 2022. The quarterly Crash Reports compare the number of bicycle, pedestrian, and vehicular crashes over a three-month period to the same time period in the previous year. The Quarter 2 Report examines crashes from April 2022 to June 2022.
When comparing April – June 2022 crashes to April – June 2021 crashes, there are a few trends worth noting.
- There’s been a noticeable decrease in the number of pedestrian crashes for both St. Louis City and County
- Car crashes resulting in a fatality increased significantly in St. Louis City from 13 to 21 for this time period in 2022
- For the first time since 2018, a person riding a bike was killed in the City of St. Louis
- High crash corridors in St. Louis continue to be problematic for the safety of people walking. Roads like N. Lindbergh, W. Florissant, and Halls Ferry continue to be above average in the number of pedestrian crashes
