ITOworld.com has combined data from the Fatality Analysis Reporting System of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration with the OpenStreetMap project to pinpoint U.S. road fatalities over the past nine years. The result is shocking.

Use this site to view information about virtually every fatality that occurred on roads in the United States as a result of a collision involving a motor vehicle between between 1 January 2001 and 31 December 2009. For each incident you will be able to see the person's age, sex and the year in which the crash took place. Where information is not available fields are left blank.

To start enter a place name into the search box, press return and then select the correct result from the results list. If the place is not listed then try a larger place nearby.

When you are in the right area of the country use the mouse and the zoom buttons to move around the map. Use the 'bigger/smaller' icon in the top-right corner of the map to make the map larger or smaller. Use the 'key' button in the top-left corner to open or close the key for the map.
