  • The largest number of injury crashes occurred between 4:00 and 7:00 P.M., but fatalities were highest between 8:00 P.M. and midnight.
  • There were five fatalities between 4:00 and 7:00 P.M., but nine fatalities between 8:00 P.M. and midnight.
  • Approximately half of all crashes occurred during the summer months of June, July and August.
  • Most bicycle crashes occurred during day light hours and in good weather.
  • Sundays accounted for the highest percentage of fatalities, but the fewest percentage of bicycle injury crashes.
