Pedestrians and 18-Wheelers: Facts and Statistics

Information below comes from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the University of Michigan’s Center for National Truck and Bus Statistics.

  • About 130,000 individuals are injured each year in collisions with large trucks.
  • An average of 368 pedestrians and 83 cyclists are killed each year in traffic accidents involving trucks.
  • Pedestrian accidents involving large trucks and 18-wheelers are especially deadly because the maximum gross weight of a truck (80,000 lbs) is more than 15 times the weight of the average car.
