Tractor Trailer Accidents/Truck Crashes

Truck accidents often involve multiple car drivers. If a tractor-trailer driver is speeding on I-80 (or any other local roadway) and road conditions are poor, the truck may jackknife and cause a chain reaction involving many cars, or it may slam into the rear of a vehicle in front of it, which will hit the vehicle in front of it, and so on.

Trucks Cause Serious Damage

Fully loaded 18-wheeler trucks can weigh up to 80,000 pounds. They can cause significant damage in even seemingly minor collisions. The average car may weight about 3,000 pounds. That sort of weight and size differential results in a serious imbalance of power; the truck driver can usually walk away without a scratch, but occupants of the car could be killed.
