CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Cleveland area drivers are less likely to have an accident than drivers in most other cities, according to a report from Allstate Insurance Co.

The average driver in Cleveland will experience an auto collision every 10 years, ranking the area 63rd among 200 cities, Allstate said in a report released today.

The Akron area ranked 58th, with an accident every 10.1 years. Both cities were in line with the national average.

Cleveland ranked 59th last year and Akron 49th.

The findings are based on Allstate's claims data. Allstate said it holds about 10 percent of all U.S. auto policies.

"Drivers in Cleveland and Akron are making great progress toward keeping America's roadways safer," Brian Blum, an Allstate agency owner in Chagrin Falls, said in a news release.

This year's top honor of "America's Safest Driving City" is Sioux Falls, S.D., the fifth year the city has held the top spot in the report's eight-year history. According to the report, the average driver in Sioux Falls will experience an auto collision every 13.8 years, 27.6 percent less likely than the national average.

Dayton finished 18th, Cincinnati 117th and Columbus 135th.
