Trucks are one of the common types of vehicles driving on our roads. But with their considerable size and weight, they are involved in many catastrophic accidents causing up to 4.000 deaths annually in the United States. Since trucks can weight around 20-30 times more than an average car and take more time to stop, 70% of the times it’s the other (smaller) vehicle’s passengers who get fatally injured.
Most truck crashes occur due to human error, some prevailing causes being aggressive driving, fatigued or distracted driving or even driver impairment or inexperience.
