Truck Accident Statistics

Trucking accidents are extremely dangerous and result in a high number of injuries and fatalities each year in this country. A study reported by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) estimated that in a recent year there were:

  • 475,000 crashes involving large trucks
  • Of those crashes, 3,864 were fatal, and
  • 104,000 crashes resulted in injury
  • 83% of the fatalities were passenger vehicle drivers or passengers, bicyclists or pedestrians
  • 99,911 trucks were involved in crashes that required the vehicle(s) to be towed away

Common Causes of Truck Accidents

The FMCSA, along with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) conducted a study of 120,000 large truck crashes that occurred in recent years. A representative sampling of those crashes was taken, and each of the 963 crashes in the sampling involved at least one large truck and resulted in injury or fatality. The most common causes of accidents involving trucks and truck drivers are:

  • Brake problems
  • An interruption of the flow of traffic ahead (caused by road congestion or accidents)
  • Driving under the influence of prescription drugs
  • Driving too fast for the current road conditions
  • Unfamiliarity with the roadway

Other common causes include roadway problems, driver drug use, inadequate surveillance , nd driver fatigue.
