Common causes of Truck Accidents:
- DUI - Driving a truck under the influence of alcohol.
- Driver Fatigue - Cross-country truck driving is very weary
and tiresome. A driver may experience fatigue and unwittingly
cause a truck accident.
- Truck Overturns - Major causes of accidents are driving
too close to ditches or on soft shoulders, driving on slopes
with an uneven load, and raising the truck bed on uneven
- Crushed by the Bed - Failure to block a raised bed while
working on the hoist can result in the bed coming down on
- Backing - About 25 percent of accidents involving trucks
are a result of backing over a person or into an object.
- Vehicle Collisions - Accidents resulting from poor brakes,
nonworking signals, or driver fatigue are common during
the harvest season.
- Transporting Equipment or Other Materials on Trailers
- Failure to load and secure equipment or other materials
properly can cause the load to either fall off trailers
or cause the towing vehicle to lose control.
- Overloaded Trucks or Trailers - Overloading trucks or
trailers puts additional strain on the vehicle, particularly
the brakes and tires. Towing a trailer with a weight heavier
than the towing vehicle will lead to loss of control, especially
- Loads That Shift Weight - Livestock will shift weight
when turning corners or when making sudden swerves. Liquids
in tanks will slosh back and forth if no baffles are installed
in the tank. Maintaining the control of a truck is difficult
when weight slips especially on poor road conditions.
