“Ice Road Truckers” has not featured any drivers that have died on the show. As of November 2015, the series has broadcast nine seasons, with over 115 episodes.
In 2014, Hugh Rowland, known as Polar Bear on the show, filed a lawsuit against the show due to a truck crash. Rowland claims he suffered serious injuries as a passenger when one of the show’s producers drove a pickup truck recklessly. The driver lost control of the truck, which caused him to veer off the road and crash into some trees.
In 2012, Brett Colley, a fan of the TV show, moved to Canada to become truck driver after becoming fascinated with the series. He later became a truck driver, but died after his rig veered off a frozen highway featured on the TV show.
