Author: Nagle, Matthew
Permanent Link:
Abstract: In 2006, light trucks (pickup trucks,1 sport utility vehicles, and vans) comprised approximately one-third of registered vehicles and 40 percent of vehicles involved in fatal collisions in the United States.2 In 2007 in Indiana, 115,214 light truck drivers were involved in collisions, of which 465 were in fatal collisions. Light truck involvement in fatal collisions in Indiana increased over nine percent from 2006 to 2007. Of the 896 traffic fatalities that occurred in Indiana in 2007, 295 (33 percent) were light truck occupants. This fact sheet analyzes light truck involvement in collisions in Indiana, including trends in injuries and collision circumstances, location, restraint use (including possible effects of the revised Indiana seat belt law), alcohol involvement, and county comparisons.
