According to the latest year update available from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), there were more than 148,000 total injuries caused by heavy truck crashes across the United States.
Upon examining statistics provided by the Ohio Highway Safety Office, we can see that there were more than 23,000 total crashes involving mid-to heavy-weight trucks during the latest reporting year across the state. Out of these incidents, there were 192 fatal crashes and 4,622 injury crashes.
The FMCSA says that a fully-loaded tractor-trailer can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds and reach up to 75 feet in length. Due to the size and weight of these vehicles compared to traditional passenger vehicles, it is not hard to see why truck accidents are often more severe than car accidents..
