Health Tip: Leading Causes of Unintentional Injury

(HealthDay News) -- More than 160,000 people died in the United States of an unintended injury in 2016, the National Safety Council says.

Unintended injury often happens when you least expect it, the council warns, such as while you're on vacation, doing chores at home or driving across town.

Here is the agency's list of the top causes of unintentional injury and death:

  • Poisoning.
  • Motor vehicle crash.
  • Falling.
  • Choking or suffocation.
  • Drowning.
  • Fires and burns.
  • Weather-related injury.
