- For example, in a recent study of consecutive driver-fatal accidents in New York City it was found that 79% were either killed instantaneously or died within one hour and that only 14% lived as long as six hours. Consequently, once these accidents had been initiated only the better packaging of those involved could have prevented death in the overwhelming majority of cases. (McCarroll, J.
