Interesting that it’s not just down to a recent increase in firearms deaths (which is quite alarming), but also due to a 50% decrease in car crash deaths between 2005-2015, which was the previous leading cause of death.
[edit: the graph in figure 1 here shows the trends nicely: https://www.nejm.org/doi/10.1056/NEJMc2201761 ]

Car safety has gone up exponentially in the last decade. There are a ton of newer safety features that are now required to even put a new car on the market. The bar is even higher several states.
Sensors and cameras are making a huge impact on decreasing collisions. Not to mention just pure engineering that reduces severe injuries in the event of an accident.
Can’t wait to see what we come up with in another 10-20 years.
