Despite its relatively small populations, Clearfield and Clearfield County play host to an unusual amount of motor vehicle accidents. This is likely due to several state roads and Interstate 80. Clearfield is also a rural area which makes it necessary to frequently use these roads. Additionally, Clearfield sits at a high elevation, and the weather is often a factor in accidents.
