But, did you know that about every 15 minutes, a person is killed or seriously injured in an accident caused by tractor trailers, also called 18-wheelers, big rigs or semi-trucks? Around 500,000 trucking accidents occur each year in the United States!
Some statistics that may surprise you are…sixty-eight percent of all fatal truck accidents happened not in cities, but in rural regions. More than half of all fatal truck accidents occurred during the day, and almost 80% occurred on weekends. Surprisingly, the majority of large truck crashes occur when the weather is clear and the roads are actually dry.
