As America's opioid crisis continues to get worse, a new report says that people dying from overdoses has overtaken another common cause of death for many Americans.
The National Safety Council says that death by opioid overdose is now a more likely cause of death for Americans than dying in a car accident. They say Americans have a 1 in 96 chance to die from opioid overdose, compared to 1 in 103 for car accidents. Opioid overdoses are now a more likely cause of death than guns, drowning and accidental falls. According to statistics, more than 130 Americans die from opioid overdoses every day.
