Truck accidents in Arizona can be dangerous. Know the risks
Truck accidents can be some of the most severe crashes on the road in Arizona. The sheer size of the vehicles often results in massive accidents sometimes involving multiple vehicles. That's why truck accident injuries can sometimes be so intense - and happen so often.
Nationwide, 3,675 people died in accidents in 2010 caused by large trucks, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation. That's an 8.7 percent increase compared to 2009. In Arizona, the statistics are just as startling. In 2011, there were 12,351 motor vehicle accidents in Arizona involving buses or trucks, which are sometimes also known as 18-wheelers, semi-trucks or tractor trailers. These accidents represent 6.2 percent of all accidents.
