(NBC) - A new study suggests pregnant women are more likely to get into a car accident.

The research out of the university of Toronto surveyed more than 500,000 women on their car crash history before and during pregnancy.

They found the risk for being involved in a car crash went up more than 40 percent during the second trimester of pregnancy.

The risk was still pretty low. It was less than that of men their age, but researchers say it's important to tell pregnant women about the need to drive more carefully.
