4 common causes of truck accidents

Commercial trucks present unique risks to motorists and passengers in smaller vehicles. Tractor trailer operators must be aware of the risks associated with their large vehicles and drivers of passenger vehicles must be cautious when sharing the road with trucks. Small mistakes and errors can lead to injuries and fatalities. Even the most skilled and patient truck drivers can cause or contribute to accidents due to the risks associated with the weight and size of their vehicles. Common causes of truck accidents are discussed below.

Texas motorcycle accidents: Truck rears ends, kills biker

Many also take care to drive defensively to lessen the chances of an accident caused by the actions of other drivers. However, drivers of enclosed vehicles experience a different level of risk than motorcyclists. Riders involved in Texas motorcycle accidents face far greater odds of being severely injured or killed in crashes than the drivers of cars or trucks.
