Causes of Large Truck Accidents
A semi truck is enormous; 80,000 pounds of steel traveling at highway speeds of 60 mph or more guarantees more damage will occur. When you combine the sheer mass of a semi truck with other semi truck driver mistakes such as speeding and driving drowsy, an accident is inevitable.
Other common causes of truck accidents that put drivers at risk include:
- Brake failure
- Extreme weather conditions
- Road debris
- Driver fatigue
- Blind spots
- Improper tire maintenance
- Poor cargo loading
- DWI / DUI
