Truck Accidents in New Orleans by the Numbers
While trucks are a vital resource for our economy, these massive vehicles also present many risks due to their size and weight. As the numbers show, truck accidents tend to be incredibly devastating, often resulting in damage, severe injuries and even death.
In 2019, there were 91 large trucks and buses involved in fatal crashes in the state of Louisiana, according to a study by Louisiana State University. The most recent large truck crash data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration also shows the severe impact truck accidents have, as 4,761 people were killed in crashes across the U.S. involving large trucks over a twelve-month period.
