Look them up on Safer. That is where the reporterS normally get that stat. QC runs under a couple different sets of numbers though IIRC. They have affiliates like Ryan and others right?

Correct, but all the affiliates operate under QC's numbers.

Look at their number on saferweb then. Scroll down and it should have a breakdown of fatal, injury, tow away

I'd like to see where the reporter got the stats from.

Is he including backing into a yellow pole as a crash?

The way it's written, makes it look like one tenth of the fleet has hit another vehicle on the highway. I know for a fact that's not true.
A DOT recordable accident is one where one or more vehicles are towed. There's a lot of Swift trucks. That's a lot of chances to get into a wreck, their fault or not.

Combine that with **** poor training, and those numbers are incredibly easy to attain.

three conditions make it reportable...

Nurse, hearse or a hook.
