Crash deaths worse in U.S. than other affluent countries

NEW YORK—Traffic deaths are down, but a new report shows fatalities on the road are still a bigger problem in the United States than in other affluent countries.

The U.S. had by far the highest fatality rate for car crashes of the nearly 20 countries studied.

The U.S. rate in 2013 was more than twice as high as in most of the other countries.
