Data from the Insurance Institute For Highway Safety Highway Loss Data Institute states, “Most deaths in large truck crashes are passenger vehicle occupants. The main problem is the vulnerability of people traveling in smaller vehicles. Trucks often weigh 20-30 times as much as passenger cars and are taller with greater ground clearance, which can result in smaller vehicles underriding trucks in crashes.” The IIHSHLDI further adds, “Truck braking capability can be a factor in truck crashes. Loaded tractor-trailers take 20-40 percent farther than cars to stop, and the discrepancy is greater on wet and slippery roads or with poorly maintained brakes.”
They further add that truck driver fatigue is a major contributing factor in truck accidents. “Drivers of large trucks are allowed by federal hours-of-service regulations to drive up to 11 hours at a stretch. Surveys indicate that many drivers violate the regulations and work longer than permitted,” the IIHSHLDI states. Additional factors such as speed, distracted driving, uneven or compromised pavement can all cause a truck accident.
