In the past, the leading cause of injury deaths in America has consistently been car crashes but a new study has found that there are now more deaths each year from suicide than by car accidents… Part of the reason for this trend is due to the increased amount of emphasis put on vehicle safety, while sadly, it is much harder to prevent suicide. Even more troubling, experts predict that that the actual number of suicides is 20 percent higher than the reported number of suicides. -Orion Jones
