I have interpreted your question to mean the number of car collisions which caused death by the driver’s age group.

The below table shows the number of collisions involving fatal injury and driver by age band from January to November 2020, which is the latest information available. Please note that multiple vehicles may be involved in each collision and that some vehicles may not be in direct conflict with persons fatally injured. Age may be recorded as unknown by the police in the case of failed to stop collision. The figures for 2020 are provisional and subject to change. Finalised figures will be published in the ‘Casualties in Greater London during 2020’ factsheet in spring 2021, which is in line with the Department for Transport’s publication timescale for the national dataset.
