If you have ever been involved or witnessed an accident involving a semi-truck or commercial vehicle, then you are fully aware of how scary and dangerous these types of events are. With such large vehicles, the potential for horrific injuries are much higher than normal traffic events and account for the highest fatality rates on highways.
With truckers having to log more-and-more miles on long hauls, with no time to spend considering the maintenance and upkeep of their vehicles, mechanical failure and negligence from exhaustion are more-and-more common on American roadways.
Some potential areas that happen with these types of incidents are:
Equipment Malfunction from Lack of Maintenance / Upkeep
Driving While Exhausted / Tired
Driving Under the Influence of Drugs / Alcohol
Lack of awareness / unsafe driving methods
