For some years, the number one cause of death for teenagers in the United States has been car accidents.
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, in 2013, 2,163 teens in the United States ages 16–19 were killed, and 243,243 were treated in emergency departments for injuries suffered in motor vehicle crashes. Breaking that number down further, six teens ages 16–19 died every day from motor vehicle injuries during that period.
