Trucking Accident Statistics
Truck drivers are professional drivers. In general, they are the most experienced and safest drivers on the road. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) reports that the driver of a passenger vehicle is more than three times more likely to cause a crash than the driver of a large truck. Large trucks are only involved in less than 4% of all motor vehicle crashes.
Motor vehicle crashes involving trucks are three times more likely to have been caused by the driver of another vehicle. Trucking accidents are three times more likely to be fatal than a crash involving a smaller vehicle. Two-thirds of the trucks that are involved in accidents are semi-trucks – a combination of a tractor unit and one or more semi-trailer.
