What percentage of people involved in car accidents vs. plane crashes die?

I'm not interested in the statistics about how likely it is for you to be involved in a car crash vs. a plane crash, I'm interested in what the percentage of fatalities is in such crashes. If I were in a plane crash vs. a car crash, which am I more likely to survive?

Chance of dying from a car accident: 1 in 18,585........

Chance of dying in an airplane accident: 1 in 354,319....

The car would be safer.....

The car crash would be more likely to survive due to more safety devices installed (air bags, bumpers, crumple zones) than the airplane crashing at the same speed. However, airplanes are getting better, as with the Cirrus aircraft with the built in whole airplane parachute. Airplane designs have neglected safety due to the weight penalty of the devices and the onerous FAA certification required of any change to the airframe.
