Hit-and-run collisions account for almost 6 deaths per day and there is at least one per minute in the U.S.
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.
