Suicide. One in 88 chance you'll end yourself

Opioid overdose. One in 96 chance.

Auto accident. One in 103. this is the first year that opioid overdose beat out car accidents.

Falling. One in 114  (Damn gravity)

Hit by a car or other vehicle.  One in 556 (unless your are one of those with so much faith in mankind that you walk blindly into a crosswalk)
