New Jersey Truck Accidents
In 2018, 4,136 people were killed in crashes involving large trucks. Of those reported deaths, 67 percent involved those traveling in passenger vehicles. Another 15 percent involved pedestrians and cyclists.
Semi-trucks cause more than their fair share of devastating collisions. The statistics speak for themselves, and the bottom line is that trucks are extremely dangerous. Rig operators are required to make safety a priority, but due to intense pressures on the road, even the most skilled trucker can make a critical error.
