Research Reveals Leading Causes of Large Truck Crashes

According to a 2009 survey from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, an astounding 10 percent of all fatal motor vehicle accidents involve large trucks. The truck accident rate is disproportionately high, considering that large trucks make up only about 3 percent of all registered vehicles.To find the causes, two engineers from Kansas State University have combined information from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration with their own research. The results are quite interesting. For instance, the research shows nearly 78 percent of fatal truck crashes occur in the daylight, and with no obvious adverse weather conditions like rain or snow.
