    Remember: People cause crashes, not cars.

    According to the National Safety Council, there are more than 27,000 car accidents each and every day in the United States. Nobody is seriously injured in the majority of these crashes, but the vehicles definitely sustain damage, and not all of that damage is reported to insurance agencies or repaired.

    Most accident damage is "typically reported by an insurance agency or body shop," while other times "visible paintwork or damage was highlighted by an inspector, but un-flagged by a vehicle history report." So, the crew at put together a list of the vehicles most likely to be involved in car crashes, and they separated the results by incidents that were or were not reported.
