What Accident information is included in RigDig™?

Feb | 6 | 11

RigDig™ reports provide information on both federally recordable accidents and post-accident inspections. 

Federally recordable accidents are the most severe accidents that involve an injury, a fatality, or was involved in a tow-away accident. Since 2000, there have been over 600,000 federally recordable accidents involving a tow-away for class 3-8 trucks (for valid VINs) reported in RigDig. Of these accidents, over 23,000 resulted in a fatality.

RigDig™ reports also provide information on post-accident inspections. Often, a less severe, non-federally recordable accident may be identified by a post-accident inspection. Since 2000, there have been over 139,000 post-accident inspections for class 3 – 8 trucks.

Please be aware that not all accidents are reported to RigDig™. The less severe, fender benders are not typically reported to RigDig™. In addition, RigDig™ does not report accidents where the VIN may have been inaccurately documented.

Over the last 10 years RigDig has reported an average over 93,000 federally reported tow-away accidents annually for class 3-8 trucks. Of these accidents, 2.9% resulted in a fatality.

VIN Cloning is a growing crime, where criminals take the vehicle identification number (VIN) from a wrecked vehicle while it is sitting in a junkyard, then create new VIN plates for a stolen vehicle of the same make, model, year and color. RigDig can protect you from purchasing a VIN cloned vehicle.

2.8% of all RigDig Reports run by users were for trucks that were flagged as either Junk, Salvage or had a serious Salvage Title.
