The National Center for Statistics and Analysis (NCSA) defines a large truck as any medium or heavy truck, excluding buses and motor homes with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) greater than 10,000 pounds, and according to this same source, in the 2014 calendar year, approximately 85% of all large trucks involved in fatal traffic crashes were heavy large trucks (GVWR > 26,000 lbs.).
