Tractor-Trailer Crash Statistics | Missouri Tractor-Trailer Lawyers

Commercial truck accident rates have steadily declined in Missouri (16,837 in 2004 compared to 12,082 in 2014), but considering that most truck accidents are preventable, the truck crash rate is high. As further perspective, based on 2017 state-based motor vehicle death statistics, large trucks are the third-leading cause of death in Missouri accidents, preceded by passenger vehicle accidents and pickup/SUV collisions.

According to Missouri truck accident statistics, the leading cause of tractor-trailer accidents include the following negligent driving behaviors:

Thousands of people are injured or killed in car accidents and truck crashes in Missouri every year, most of which are caused by speeding and distracted driving.
