Truck Accidents in Clayton, NM: A Transit Heavy Location
More than a way of transit, Clayton, NM built its foundation in the railroad industry and ranch community that led to the town becoming a major livestock shipping center.
In keeping with that tone, and adding a nostalgic value for tourists who pass through Clayton, NM there are two historic locations that have been in operation for over a century:
The charming buildings and businesses are reminders of simpler days, and are often overshadowed by tragedy when a large-truck accident occurs in Clayton, NM. With farming and agriculture still at the top of the area’s livelihood, semi-trucks traverse our roads regularly and it’s impossible to know when a negligent driver or defective equipment can turn a sunny afternoon into a grim reminder of how dangerous these trucks can be.
Truck Accident Statistics: Nationwide and in New Mexico
Truck accident statistics are staggering, but are important to our community’s ability to understand that these crashes happen more frequently than industry leaders would like to admit.
The US Department of Transportation has two separate divisions that track truck accident statistics throughout the nation, and in New Mexico: The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.
According to their records, last year alone there were:
- 3,903 people killed in crashes involving large trucks
- 111,000 people were injured in truck crashes, marking a 17% increase from the previous year
- 73% of the people killed in truck accidents were drivers or passengers or other vehicles
- 402 people were killed in traffic accidents in New Mexico; 38 of those fatalities were caused by semi-truck crashes
