In 2017, 4,889 large trucks and buses were involved in fatal crashes, which was a 9-percent increase from 2016.
In 2016, of the 34,439 fatal crashes on U.S. roadways, 4,079 (11.8-percent) involved at least one large truck or bus. In addition, there were an estimated 7,242,000 non-fatal crashes, 537,000 (7.4-percent) of which involved at least one large truck or bus. Furthermore, in 2016, 9.5-percent of large truck drivers who were involved in fatal crashes were not wearing any type of safety belt.
Large trucks are much more likely to be involved in fatal multi-vehicle accidents.
