Indiana ranked 9th most dangerous state for truck drivers

New research reveals that Wyoming is the most dangerous state for truck drivers… and Indiana is ranked 9th most dangerous.
The research carried out by transportation services, Simplex, analyzed the latest data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
It measured the percentage of large trucks involved in deadly crashes in 2020 compared to all fatal vehicle crashes per state to declare the state with the least percentage as being the safest for truck drivers.
The study revealed that Michigan is the safest state for truck drivers on the road, with just 4-point-7% of its fatal crashes involve large trucks.
Looking at the study, a spokesperson from Simplex commented: “This research offers an interesting insight into which states are lagging behind the goal of making roads safer for truck drivers. It also highlights the need for these states to consider implementing more truck-safe road systems for drivers.
“According to the NHTSA, there are thousands of fatal crashes involving large trucks every year, so this study could alert truck drivers to better prepare when journeying in these particular states.”
