Fatal Commercial Motor Crashes Trending Downward in Colorado

(COLO) – After a steady increase of CMV-caused fatal crashes between 2018 and 2021, current data suggests that Colorado is experiencing a downward trend in CMV fatal crashes. The state experienced a five-year high in 2021 with 79 fatal crashes involving a CMV and, since then, has seen a decrease each year.

In 2022, Colorado had 64 fatal crashes involving a CMV, a reduction of 18.9% versus the previous year. By October 11, 2023, the State had experienced 43 fatal crashes involving a CMV versus 47, a reduction of 8.5%. In addition, when looking at fatal crashes caused by the CMV driver, fatal crashes are down 10.5% versus the same time period in 2022.

“The severity of CMV-involved crashes to the occupants and the roadways is extreme,” stated Col. Matthew C. Packard, chief of the Colorado State Patrol. “Historically, CMV crashes begin to trend upward in October and peak in January for Colorado. Our troopers and Port of Entry officers have already begun implementing various enforcement crash-reduction strategies to keep crashes down and help save lives.”
