Causes of Truck Collisions
Regardless what the cause of a truck accident may be, the consequences are serious, and in the worst cases, deadly. While many of these types of collisions are caused by trucker fatigue, others are caused when drivers participate in the following:
- Alcohol consumption
- Drug Use
- Distracted driving
- Failure to comply with signals or signs
- Impatient driving
