Truck accidents are far more widespread than most people think. They are responsible for thousands of injuries every year in the United States. These accidents can happen for many reasons, and they have the potential to be severe because of the vehicle size and weight.

Here are ten factors that can lead to an 18-wheeler crash:

  1. Fatigued driver
  2. Negligence
  3. Driver under the influence of drugs
  4. Driver under the influence of alcohol
  5. Weather conditions
  6. Truck malfunctions
  7. Speeding
  8. Overweight loads
  9. Cell phones and text message
  10. Lack of training
