List of road accidents records serious road accidents: those that have a large death toll, occurred in unusual circumstances, or have some other historical significance. For crashes that killed famous people, refer to List of people who died in road accidents. The prevalence of bus accidents in this list is a function of severity rather than of frequency.

During evening in a badly-lit area, a bus hits a company of fifty-two young members of the Royal Marines Volunteer Cadet Corps, aged between ten and thirteen years. 24 cadets were killed and 18 injured; at the time it was the greatest loss of life of any road accident in British history. The crash was later ruled accidental.
