This statistic shows the number of school children who were killed or seriously injured in road accidents when walking to or from school in Great Britain in 2015, by age. The highest numbers of serious or fatal casualties were among 11 and 12 year olds with almost one hundred 11 year-olds killed or seriously injured in 2015. Conversely 7 and 16 year olds had the least involvement in road accidents walking to and from school, with 7 year olds representing less than six percent of the measure of 11 year old casualties.
