According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, trucking accidents have a high chance of leading to fatalities. According to their research, trucks weighing more than 10,000 pounds are more frequently involved in highway accidents with fatalities than any other vehicle. These large trucks include single-unit tracts, cargo van, and tractor trailers. Despite the fact that these trucks are so frequently involved in accidents, truck drivers were actually the least likely to die in these accidents due to the sheer size and weight of the truck. Accidents can become even more deadly when the drivers are speeding, passenger cars and other vehicles are much more likely to sustain serious injuries or die as a result of the accident.
