Truck and Car Accident
It is estimated there are over five million car crashes every year. Out of these crashes, more than two million result in a person being injured and over thirty thousand result in fatalities. Every day we spend time on the road. Even when we drive perfectly safe, we can be in an accident and even be injured by a negligent driver.
In the United States every year, there is approximately half a million collisions that include tractor trailers and other vehicles or pedestrians. Approximately 5,000 people die each year as a result of these collisions and the majority of these deaths occurred in rural regions.
The Trucking Industry is a big business, with revenues over $500 billion a year and the numbers continue to climb as more products are moved every day over the same roads that passenger vehicles share.
