The Majority of Severe Truck Crashes Occur on Our Interstate Highways
IIHS and government data demonstrate that between 400,000 and 500,000 motor vehicle crashes involving heavy trucks occur each year in the United States. Our I-35 truck accident attorneys note that almost 20% of those collisions are rear-end wrecks. Around 58% of the fatal wrecks where the truck hits the other vehicle take place on interstate highways. 41% of the fatal crashes where the truck is struck by the smaller vehicle occur on the interstates: some of those deaths may be attributable to the dangerous problem of underride.
