In 2008 there was a total of 123,918 large trucks and 13,263 buses that were involved in non-fatal crashes in the United States. 49,084 large trucks and 7,123 buses were involved in injury crashes. 73,047 injuries resulted in large truck crashes, and 16,760 injuries due to bus crashes. There were also 74,834 large trucks and 6,140 buses that were involved in tow away crashes, and 2,609 large trucks and 11 buses that were involved in Hazmat Placard crashes. Most of the fatal truck accidents occurred 68% of the time in rural areas, 66% during the day time, and 78% of the time on weekdays. Passenger vehicles are less likely than large trucks to be involved in a fatal multi-vehicle accident.

One of the most common reasons why there is a collision between a passenger vehicle and a large truck is because of the passenger vehicles driver being ignorant of the truck's performance capabilities, including what type of visibility the truck driver has, and the limits that are associated with braking. This can also include changing lanes quickly in front of a truck, driving in the "No-Zones", right behind and beside the truck where the driver cannot see you, and not slowing down or speeding up when a truck starts to change a lane or merge.
