Default Wow....Chevy Silverado in the top 10 vehicles most likely to kill you.

Seems odd to see a full sized pickup on this list with a bunch of cardboard box economy cars, doesn't it?

New study reveals 10 cars most likely to kill you:

Now the question is, are these numbers because of the vehicle? Or the driver? Or just plain bad luck.

8 alwayw figured the vehicle was always supposed to protect you no matter where the failure came from.

GM trucks have had weak roofs for a long time. Most of the deaths were probably from rollover accidents.

Good thing I didn't hit the trailer smack in the middle, Karplyuk recalled thinking. That guy would've been dead.
