Tanker trucks are known for being dangerous—often because they carry deadly chemicals such as gasoline, diesel and industrial solvents. When these trucks collide with other vehicles, the result is serious. Accident reports often include descriptions of flames and explosions. The resulting injuries are life changing, and fatalities are common.
