Trucking Accidents: Long-Haul Hazards

Semitrucks cause a disproportionate amount of serious injuries and fatalities on the road. For instance, one study found that just 8 percent of vehicles were semitrucks, but they still caused 11 percent of the fatal crashes across the country.

Why are so many of these serious injuries and fatalities linked to trucking? A lot of the reason is the size of the vehicles involved. Trucks can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds, and they sit far higher than passenger cars. When a semi rear-ends a passenger car, for instance — the most common type of accident in the state — it can completely destroy the passenger compartment when a smaller vehicle may have struck the bumper and ground to a halt.
