Truck Accident Causes

Truck accidents occur more than one would hope. They also result in serious injuries or even fatal deaths. Due to the large size of a truck, it is important for a driver to be trained and experienced. It is much harder for a truck to stop. The stopping distance for a truck is dramatically greater than a car. If a truck is traveling at 65 MPH, it needs about 450 feet to stop. If a car is traveling 65 MPH, it requires about 160 feet to stop. This alone shows how important it is for a driver to be alert when driving a truck.

The primary causes of truck accidents include:

  • Drug use
  • Speeding
  • Driving in unfamiliar areas
  • Careless driving
  • Not checking blind spots
  • Driver fatigue
  • Using a signal before turning
  • Distracted driving
  • Road rage
  • Inadequate training
  • Overloaded trucks
  • Jackknife accidents
  • Lack of training
  • Runaway trailers
  • Road conditions
  • Speeding
  • Poor maintenance
  • Many other causes
