How Common Are Amazon Van and Truck Crashes?
It’s hard to say. That’s because the Amazon delivery system includes direct employees, Amazon Delivery Service Partners (DSPs), and independent contractors hired through Amazon Flex. That makes it hard to track how many accidents are directly related to Amazon.
DSP drivers likely make up approximately half of Amazon drivers in the U.S., but Amazon excludes them from its public injury reports. Individual DSPs may report their crashes and other injuries to OSHA, but Amazon Flex workers are neither Amazon nor DSP employees. Crashes they cause are likely reported only in general vehicle crash numbers, not to OSHA.
That said, there were 5,578 traffic crashes in San Diego in 2019 (the most recent data available) where someone was injured or killed, according to the California Office of Traffic Safety. That’s approximately 15 per day. When the rest of greater San Diego County is included, that number skyrockets to 19,928, or roughly 55 every day.
What Causes Amazon Van and Truck Accidents in San Diego, CA?
Amazon drivers are under intense pressure to deliver a high volume of packages. In a recent class-action lawsuit, a DSP operator alleged it was expected to deliver 350-400 packages per day per van in California – that’s a delivery roughly every 1 to 2 minutes in a 10-hour shift. And that’s not accounting for any breaks. When drivers are in a rush, they tend to make mistakes.
Many accidents are caused by negligence or recklessness, such as:
- Failure to yield the right of way
- Aggressive driving
- Distracted driving, such as using an app or navigation system
- Running red lights
- Failing to secure cargo
- Obstructing traffic while parked for deliveries
- Making illegal U-turns
- Driving while fatigued
We have ample resources to investigate your case, including the ability to hire experts as needed to support causation and damages.
