What vehicles are involved in most bicycle accidents?

by | Jun 9, 2021

According to a study by NHSTA, certain vehicle types account for significant proportions of bicycle accident fatalities and injuries. The most common vehicles were light trucks (including SUVs, pickups, and vans), which were involved in 45% of all fatal bicycle crashes. Passenger cars, such as coupes, sedans, and small SUVs, also accounted for a high number of fatal accidents (37%). Both light trucks and passenger cars overwhelmingly struck the bicyclists with the front of the vehicle, perhaps implying the drivers did not see the cyclist due to the size of the vehicle or because they were distracted.
