Fatalities Rise in Pickup vs Car Crashes

- June 18, 2012

Efforts to reduce the num­ber of deaths in crash­es between cars and light trucks have been suc­cess­ful with SUVs but not with pick­ups, a new fed­er­al report shows.  The report, which was qui­et­ly released last month, says fatal­i­ties in car-truck crash­es were down 8% from 2002 to 2010, thanks to a 17% decrease in fatal­i­ties in cars hit by SUVs. But crash­es with pick­ups actu­al­ly led to 5% more car deaths, and there wasn’t any reduc­tion in fatal­i­ties for about half of vehi­cles stud­ied, NHTSA said.
