What Are the Most Common Truck Accidents?
Being among the largest vehicles on the road, 18-wheelers can be incredible dangerous to operate – and to drive alongside. It’s for this reason that trucking companies must be held responsible for ensuring their drivers are properly trained and the vehicles are regularly maintained.
The 7 most common types of truck accidents in Jackson are:
- Jackknife accidents
- T-bone accidents
- Truck rollovers
- Sideswipe accidents
- Rear-end collisions
- Head-on collisions
- Wide turn accidents
How Common Are Truck Accidents?
Did you know? According to the FMCSA, although commercial trucks make up less than 5% of all registered vehicles in the US, more than 13% of fatal crashes in 2020 involved a commercial vehicle. More than 7 of 10 individuals killed in truck accidents were the occupants of “other vehicles,” that is, not in the big rig.
But it’s not just the passengers or drivers of other vehicles that are in danger. In fact, according to the CDC, crashes are the leading cause of death on the job among truckers in the United States.
