Notes: Category numbers may not sum to totals due to rounding. A motor vehicle crash is considered alcohol-related if at least one driver or nonoccupant (e.g., a pedestrian or pedalcyclist) involved in the crash has a blood alcohol concentration of 0.01 grams per deciliter or greater. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates alcohol involvement when test results of alcohol concentration are unknown.
