Large-Truck Involved Crashes: An Exploratory Injury Severity Analysis

  title={Large-Truck Involved Crashes: An Exploratory Injury Severity Analysis},
  author={Mouyid Islam and Salvador Hern{\'a}ndez},
In recent years, a growing concern related to large-truck accidents has increased due to potential economic impacts and level of injury severity that can be sustained. Yet, studies related to large-truck involved crashes are scarce and lack human behavior factors that can greatly influence crash outcomes. In this study, the authors present an analysis of data from the fusion of several national data sets addressing large-truck involved injury severity. This is done by considering human, road…

Accident Analysis and Prevention
In recent years, there has been an increasing interest in understanding the contributory factors to run-offroad (ROR) crashes in the US, especially those where large trucks are involved. Although
Examining Driver Injury Severity in Single-Vehicle Road Departure Crashes Involving Large Trucks
Road departure (RD) crashes are among the most severe crashes that can result in fatal or serious injuries, especially when involving large trucks. Most previous studies neglected to incorporate both
Recursive Bivariate Probit Analysis of Injury Severity and Non-Truck Improper Actions in Large Truck-Related Crashes on Florida Suburban Roads
This study investigated the hierarchical connection among injury severity, non-t truck improper actions, and contributing factors in large-truck-involved crashes and found no clear link between truck injury severity and other factors.
Injury severity analysis and driver actions in passenger vehicle-truck collisions
Reducing truck-involved crashes is a key goal of the U.S. Department of Transportation. Large trucks (gross vehicle weight > 10,000 pounds) account for only 6% to 7% of the total vehicle miles
Injury severity of truck-involved crashes in work zones on rural and urban highways: Accounting for unobserved heterogeneity
Abstract Truck-related crashes in the work zones always resulted in severe injury outcomes. This paper analyses the injury severity of truck-involved crashes in the work zones based on a ten-year
