Big Rig Crash Statistics

There are various terms for big rigs, but the most common is “semi-tractor truck,” “semi-trailer truck,” “trailer truck,” or “trailer-trailer.” Big rigs are essential to the economy as they transport goods throughout the country.

Unfortunately, with more big rigs on the road, more accidents involving these massive vehicles also occur. One American is killed in a semi-truck accident every 15 minutes. Approximately 5,000 drivers are killed in trucking accidents each year in the United States.

Approximately 113 people are killed, and nearly 3,000 are injured each year in California due to truck accidents. About 200 to 300 people are killed each year in truck accidents in California.

Tractor-trailer collisions are the most deadly when compared to other types of car accidents. It’s mainly because of the enormous size disparity between big rig trucks and other vehicles. The stopping distance of a big rig increases by 20 to 40 percent when carrying heavy loads.
