Truck Accident Involving a Car
While fatalities from large truck crashes have declined each year since 1997 from 5,398 in 1997 to 5,082 in 2001; trucking accidents account for four percent of people injured, and more troubling, twelve percent of people killed in all motor vehicle crashes. Another disconcerting facts is that only about fourteen percent of those killed and twenty-three percent of those injured in truck accident were occupants of large trucks. As a result, the majority of those who suffer as a result large truck crashes are drivers and occupants of non-commercial passenger vehicles.
Eighty-two percent of all fatal truck crashes involved at least one other vehicle, usually a passenger vehicle. Of the 409,000 police-reported crashes involving a large truck in 2001, 4,431 resulted in at least one person being killed and another 86,000 resulted in at least one person being injured.
