18-Wheeler Crashes in Iowa
The bulk of products and freight are transported by massive big rigs across the country, and their immense weight creates a threat to those in passenger vehicles on the highway. According to national collision data, smaller car occupants are more likely than larger car occupants to experience life-threatening injuries in a collision, and these events are known to be fatal. Every year, there are over 500,000 transportation accidents, contributing to thousands of injuries and fatalities.
It is risky to drive behind huge semi-trucks and tractor-trailers, which is why many Iowa drivers are worried whenever they are near a truck or other heavy vehicle on the road. Every year, a large number of people are killed or wounded in commercial vehicle accidents, with the large proportion of those killed or injured traveling in passenger automobiles. All drivers must follow the same set of rules, but operating a large rig requires a higher level of competence and experience. Truck drivers who lack the necessary abilities to operate such huge trucks properly risk causing catastrophic Iowa trucking accidents, which all too often result in the death or injury of innocent persons.
The weight and gravity of these massive trucks may cause life-altering injuries in the event of an accident, and the number of fatalities related to semi-truck have been gradually climbing across the country.
