Crash data for Orange

Most vehicle crashes are reported to the centre for Road Safety, however crashes where no one is hurt and the vehicles exchange details and drive away are unlikely to be reported.

Council receives this crash data over a period of five years, known as the ‘crash period’. The crash period is always one year behind.

The current crash period is July 2014 to June 2019. This data is used to secure Blackspot road safety funding. The aim is make sure measures to improve safety are spent at locations where there's a history of accidents.

  • 389 people were injured (taken to hospital for treatment) from the 619 crashes and 9 of the 619 crashes resulted in a fatality.

  • 9 of the 20 crashes resulted in a serious injury,
  • 5 resulted in a moderate injury,
  • 4 resulted in a minor injury and
  • 2 resulted in a fatality.
