Let’s face it, they are a whole lot bigger than us. Trucking accidents are serious business and we take each and every one of them very seriously. How much do you think a typical tractor-trailer weighs? The answer is about 80,000 pounds. Now imagine that beast traveling at 65+ mph and the results can be catastrophic if you are clipped in your vehicle!
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration says there are about 4,000 fatal crashes each year in the United States. Many of those occur on the highways of The Great Southwest where truckers travel fast. The blame for an accident is about 50/50 between motorists and truck drivers, but you know who comes out better in those confrontations!
