According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, citing the National Highway Traffic Safety Commission, drowsy driving led to 72,000 crashes, 44,000 injuries, and 800 deaths in 2013. These numbers may even be underestimated, possibly linking drowsy driving to up to 6,000 fatal crashes each year. Source: KOMO
