Truck Accident. A young man was repairing a flat tire on the shoulder of the Capital Beltway in Prince George’s County when a large tractor trailer slammed into his vehicle and he was permanently paralyzed from the neck down.

The Dangers of Truck Underride Crashes

In an underride crash, a passenger vehicle goes partially or wholly under a truck or trailer.  When this happens the likelihood of the car’s occupants suffering fatal injuries or serious injuries is significantly increased.

A 1997 Institute study of fatal crashes between large trucks and passenger vehicles estimated that underride occurred in half of these crashes. Of the underride crashes, 57 percent involved the front of the truck, 22 percent involved the rear, and 20 percent the side.

Large Trucks Cause Higher Rate of Fatal Accidents Than Passenger Vehicle Accidents

Semi tractor-trailer truck accidents are particularly dangerous and often result in catastrophic injuries or death.  The sheer size and weight of such large trucks makes it more difficult for truck drivers to slow down or maneuver to avoid a collision.  Even a minor error in judgment can be magnified by the force of a truck and result in deadly consequences.

  • In fatal two-vehicle crashes involving a passenger vehicle and a large truck, 97 percent of the deaths were the occupants in the passenger vehicles.
  • Large trucks accounted for only 4 percent of registered vehicles and 8 percent of vehicle miles traveled in 2008; but
  • Were involved in 11 percent of all motor vehicle crash deaths and 23 percent of passenger vehicle occupant deaths in multiple-vehicle crashes.
