Florida Truck Accident Statistics and Information
- In 2013 there were over 4,140 large truck accidents in the state of Florida of which 343 were fatal.
- 62% of these truck-related crashes occurred in the urban areas of Florida including Miami, Tampa Bay, St. Petersburg, Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, Daytona, West Palm Beach, Tallahassee, and Jacksonville.
- It is estimated that these crashes cost the state of Florida over $14 billion every year.
Major Highways in the state of Florida include: I-4, I-10, I-75 and I-95.
Interstate 4: I-4 splits Florida into northern and southern sections. Daytona Beach, Orlando, Lakeland and Tampa lie along the I-4 route. The route also passes through Florida’s Green Swamp, an area notorious for fog. This fog has led to a number of deadly truck accidents and pileups. Many of which included fatalities such as the 2008 pileup near Polk City that included over 70 vehicles and that resulted in 4 deaths and 38 injured.
Interstate 10: I-10 spans the Florida panhandle and connects major northern Florida cities including Jacksonville, Lake City, Pensacola and Tallahassee. It is known for having received substantial storm surge damage during Hurricane Ivan in 2004. In August 2014, 27 people were injured when two eighteen-wheeler tractor trailers collided with a Greyhound bus in Escambia County.
Interstate 75: I-75 serves as the primary route between the Great Lakes southward to Florida. I-75 enters Florida near Lake City and continues southward to Naples, where it becomes a toll road called “Alligator Alley” and crosses over to Ft. Lauderdale. Because it stretches alongside some of the largest cities in Florida, most crashes on I-75 occur in the areas around Tampa and Miami.
Interstate 95: I-95 begins at the Maine/Canadian border and stretches along the Eastern Seaboard through Delaware. I-95 enters FL just north of Jacksonville and spans along the heavily populated Atlantic coastline of FL through the cities of Daytona Beach, Melbourne, West Palm Beach and Ft. Lauderdale. The southern terminus is in Miami. The population density in this region along with the higher number of trucks and other motor vehicles makes I-95 one of the deadliest highways in Florida.
