According to the World Resources Institute in 2005 the United States experienced 43,443 deaths due to road accidents. That is enough to make the United States rank third out of seventy four countries ranked in that category. China ranks first with 98,738 deaths due to road accidents.

    The figure is substantially lower now, down to 32,800 in 2010. Wikipedia has some nice charts.
