Do people who get hit by semi trucks usually die?

Yes. However the son of a woman my son works with was actually run over by a semi and was caught in the duallies for part of a mile before the driver was flagged down. His pelvis was crushed and the doctors gave him no chance of survival, but a bit more than a year later he is walking and trying to resume life. Ya never can tell.

Semi trucks are big and really heavy, lots of mass.........

Newton's Second Law of Motion: Force = Mass * Acceleration

Most people survive collisions, period. Doesn't matter what you hit, in a car you will have a 50% chance of no injuries, and less than a 5% chance of death.

Hi well it is a very heavy old truck to be in collision with.

ah yes
