A FATAL road accident costs £64,600, according to Transport Under Secretary John Horam.
In a written Comons reply last week, he said that this figure had risen by £8,700 following the recommendations of the Leith Committee report on accident valuation.
The total estimated cost of road accidents last year was £1,290m, an increase of £120 million.
