The driver in a car accident could be at risk of having their life ended by a fatal heart attack.
That’s according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which issued a report Monday saying that the likelihood of someone getting seriously injured or dying by heart attack in a fatal car crash is higher than in the general population.
The agency estimates that about 20 percent of all people who die in car crashes are at risk for a fatal cardiac arrest or other cardiac arrest.
That number could rise as the number of people in the U.S. with heart conditions increases, according to researchers at the University of Southern California.
They said that while heart attacks are uncommon in people who drive, they are common in people with high blood pressure.
They also said that in the past, people who had heart disease had lower rates of heart attacks than people who did not.
A person who dies in a heart attack is at a higher risk of dying from any other causes than cardiac arrest, according the report.
They were also more likely to have a family history of heart disease.
The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration also said the risk of death from a fatal crash was higher for people aged 20-64 than those aged 65 and older.
People 65 and over are at the highest risk of fatal crashes, and those who have a blood clot in their heart are at a significantly higher risk.
The report noted that the risk for heart attacks in older people increases with age and that a car crash can result in severe brain damage.
People in their 60s and older have higher risks of a fatal brain injury, the report said.
It also said older adults who drive are more likely than younger adults to be overweight or obese, and to have high blood pressures.
The report also noted that older adults are more at risk than younger people for a heart condition, including heart failure.
The researchers said the prevalence of heart problems in older adults is highest among people in their 70s.
