Pickup Truck Accident & Injury Statistics

As pickup trucks continue to increase in popularity, they are involved in higher numbers of fatal traffic crashes. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) reports that, while car accident fatalities have declined by 51% since 1975, pickup truck traffic deaths have risen by 15%.

Due to a higher center of gravity, pickups are more likely to be involved in fatal single-vehicle crashes, particularly rollover accidents. On the other hand, as pickups are generally heavier than cars, multi-vehicle collisions are less likely to be fatal for pickup truck occupants than for occupants of the other vehicles involved in the collision. A total of 4,223 pickup truck occupants were killed in traffic crashes in 2014, as compared to 12,507 car occupants and 4,097 occupants of SUVs.

Pickup Truck Rollover Accidents

Although any vehicle can rollover under the right circumstances, taller vehicles with higher centers of gravity are far more likely to be involved in this type of accident. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that pickup trucks are among the types of vehicles that are most likely to rollover under certain conditions.

According to Consumer Reports, one of the most dangerous situations is when a vehicle rolls over. When a truck rounds a curve, lateral forces shift the center of gravity to one side, affecting the vehicle's balance. These forces increase with speed and rapid changes of direction. This can create a pendulum effect and result in the driver losing control of the vehicle.

Rollovers are among the most dangerous accidents for drivers and passengers. The most frequently injured areas of the body in this type of crash are:

  • Head and neck
  • Thorax (the area of the trunk between the neck and the abdomen)
  • Abdomen
  • Upper limbs
  • Lower limbs

Most rollover crash victims sustain multiple injuries on these regions of the body, with the head and neck as the most vulnerable areas. Traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, fractures, lacerations, and bruises are common in pickup truck rollover accidents.
