In 2011, 80% of all fatal truck accidents involved multiple vehicles, and 83% of the victims were car-passengers, pedestrians, or cyclists. Illinois maintains the third-most miles of highways of any state in the nation, and here are some additional state considerations:
- Large commercial trucks drive about 18% of the total miles traveled in urban areas of Illinois, including Chicago;

- Nearly 65% of large truck accidents in Illinois occur on state highways or interstates.
