Actually some interesting crash data on some of the most popular bike routes in Texas if you look at their "routes" tab. I'm sure one can play with the statistics forever here, and what fun it is to drill down in the data, if you can ever get your hands on it. It sure looks like the same old culprits bite us in what's shown here. As usual, training and personal responsibility would probably fix a lot of issues.
