Survey Finds Major Motor Crashes are Made by Men Than Women
A survey has found that men really are more likely to be involved in major motoring crashes than women.

The study was based on data from 270,000 insurance claims.

It found that men are at a greater risk of being involved in a serious accident, while women usually escape with minor abrasions.

From the survey, it was found that male drivers are 42 per cent more likely than women motorists to be involved in a head-on collision.

On the other hand, women are 55 per cent more likely than men to have an accident in a car park.

Also, women are 15 per cent more likely to hit a parked car.
