The second largest state in the country, Texas's massive land area is divided into more counties than any other state. The 254 counties that make up the Lone Star State include densely populated urban centers, bustling suburban communities, little towns, large ranches, small farms and vast areas of nearly empty grasslands and deserts. Driving conditions vary as much as the state's population density and geography. The same sort of diversity appears in the number of deadly car accidents recorded in each Texas county, according to data from the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT).
