Research Truck Crashes

INSTITUTE FOR SAFER TRUCKING

  • 2 people are interested

We are looking for people to help us find truck crashes around the country.

With more than 5,000 people killed in large truck crashes in 2019, we reach out to hundreds of families each year to offer condolences and provide them with resources that can help them after a truck crash.

While we hope to expand our ability to reach families in their time of need, finding truck crashes strains our small staff and ultimately takes away from our ability to reach out to the people who were adversely affected in these collisions.

That is why we need volunteers to help us find truck crashes so that our team can focus on contacting families and helping them as much as we can. By doing a little each week, you can help us a lot. By devoting 30 minutes to one hour, once a week, you can help us contact more families of truck crash victims and survivors.
