This is a very good site.

If you look at the bottom there are links to all sorts of accidents including kangaroos, car theft, electric cars, distances traveled, fuel consumption etc.

Hi,

I am sure a few people on here would be happy to read;

Over 80% of crashes with heavy truck involvement are classified as multiple vehicle and only 10% are counted as single vehicle incidents. Comparing this to the statistic that 45% of non-truck involved road crashes are classified as single vehicle, reveals that truck drivers are much less likely to crash on their own than normal car drivers. 15% of all road crash fatalities and 4% of all road crash injuries involve heavy trucks, but only 20% of those crashes are attributed as the truck driver’s fault, demonstrating that on average truck drivers are safer drivers than other vehicle drivers.

Suicide by truck is also a very significant percentage, acknowledged by highway patrol in private, but none of the authorities want to talk about it.
