Arizona Truck Accident Statistics

Wrecks with large trucks can cause injuries, property damage, and even death in serious cases. Looking at statistics from the state, you can better understand the types of truck accidents that happen in Arizona and how they relate to what happened to you. The Arizona Department of Transportation released a guide of motor vehicle crash facts in the state in 2020.

In this report, they listed the amount of crashes that different kinds of large trucks have been involved in, and whether they contained fatalities, injuries, or property damage only. Some of the large trucks included are tractor trailers, concrete mixers, dump trucks, garbage trucks, tow trucks, and others. Here are the statistics listed for all of these truck types combined:

  • 10,713 crashes in total
  • 105 fatal crashes
  • 2,411 injury crashes
  • 8,197 property damage only crashes

A high proportion of accidents between trucks and cars result in property damage, as shown in the list above. This list also shows that many result in injuries, and some are even deadly. In these accidents, typically the passengers of the regular sized vehicles are more at risk for suffering fatal injuries.
