Any motor vehicle accident can be intimidating at best and outright dangerous at worst. However, those involving a large truck can be incredibly devastating due to the sheer size and weight of these vehicles. The stopping distance is increased drastically over smaller passenger vehicles. Truck drivers may fail to properly judge distances or see smaller cars from their vantage point in the truck. Without proper mirrors or other similar modifications that cars and smaller trucks do not need, their judgment may be incorrect.
These dangerous accidents in which trucks are involved can be caused by driver error, equipment failure or overweight cargo loads, defective or inadequate mirrors or lighting, failure to properly hitch trailer or driver fatigue.
