According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration in 2019, there were 510,000 police-reported crashes involving large trucks, 29% of those collisions resulted in injury and 1% resulted in fatality.
One percent may seem like a minuscule amount, unfortunately on average almost 10 people lost their lives due to trucking accidents per a day that year. Trucking accidents are often more catastrophic due to the sheer size and weight of the vehicle. Commonly, trucking accidents are caused by driver error, poor vehicle maintenance, equipment failure, inclement weather or improper cardo loading.
