Marysville Car Accident

Marysville Traumatic Car Accident Data

Marysville is an excellent place to live. With a friendly, unique community, more than 15 public parks including the beautiful Ellis Lake, and easy access to both natural areas and the metropolitan center of Sacramento, Marysville is truly an idyllic city. However, even in the best cities, there is always the risk of being involved in an accident if you drive, bike, or walk on public roads. Marysville is no exception and has seen numerous traumatic accidents over the last decade. Those who frequently make use of roadways in Marysville can reduce their risk of being involved in a crash by learning about how accidents typically happen in their area.

Collision Overview

The following information is taken from data published by UC Berkeley. Between 2005 and 2018, there were 572 traumatic car accidents reported in the city of Marysville. These accidents included 61 pedestrian collisions, 54 bicycle/vehicle crashes, and 41 motorcycle wrecks. The remaining collisions involved only passenger vehicles or commercial trucks. Additionally, 253 (or about 44 percent) of these crashes occurred on a highway operated by the state within the city limits of Marysville.


Collisions in Marysville most often involved injuries indicated only by a complaint of pain. These types of injuries made up about 65 percent of crashes overall. Crashes with injuries involved non-severe, visible trauma accounted for 27.4 percent. Collisions involving severe injuries made up 5.24 percent, and fatal crashes accounted for 3.32 percent.

The rate of fatal accidents in Marysville is considerably higher than in other similarly sized cities, with Grass Valley and Auburn having fatality rates of 0.8 and 1.3 percent respectively.

Causal Factor

The most common cause of injury crashes in Marysville has been speeding, which accounted for nearly 27 percent of all traumatic accidents and was around 10 percent more common than the next-most-common factor, right of way violation. Other common factors included improper turning, driving while intoxicated by drugs and/or alcohol, violating traffic signs and signals, and pedestrian right-of-way violations.

Less common causal factors included unsafe backing up or starting, dangerous lane-changing, improper passing, tailgating, and driving on the wrong side of the road.

Car Accident Time of Day

The time windows with the highest accident rates in Marysville were between 3:00 and 6:00 p.m. on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, which both saw dramatically more accidents than most periods. Collisions tended to occur between noon and 6:00 on weekdays, with very few collisions happening on weekends or between the hours of midnight and 6:00 a.m.

Calling an Experienced Personal Injury Attorney

The recovery process after being injured in a crash is often very hard to endure. Injured people often need to pay for expensive surgeries, medications, and therapy, all while taking a significant amount of time away from their job. Financial difficulties after an accident are very common, but many of these costs can be covered through a personal injury claim. To learn about how you can recover for your damages by filing a claim, contact a local Marysville personal injury lawyer who can tell you about the specific details of your case.
