North Dakota Truck Accidents
North Dakota truck accidents happen more often than one might realize. In 2018, over 4,000 people lost their lives due to trucking accidents in North Dakota and across the United States. In North Dakota alone, hundreds of people sustain injuries yearly due to truck crashes. According to recent statistics compiled concerning truck accidents in the US, approximately 20% of all traffic accidents involve a truck of some kind. A report completed by the American Trucking Association claims that 80% of trucking accidents are caused by smaller passenger vehicles.
