It is most often those in passenger cars that are killed in large truck collisions. Semi trucks typically weigh 20-30 times as much as passenger cars which leaves occupants of smaller cars more vulnerable.
According to the D.O.T., in 2019 67% of fatal collisions involving large trucks were occupants of a passenger car.
