Truck accidents often cause serious injuries. At times, due to their size and freight weight, some tractor trailer crashes result in death. Tractor-trailers have the potential to cause more damage to other vehicles if they are operated recklessly.
Truck Accident Delays
Recently a tractor-trailer overturned on I-95 in North Carolina and caused an 8-mile southbound traffic delay. Located near Benson, the tractor-trailer overturned early during rush hour. As of this writing, no injuries were reported. The extra traffic delays increase the risk for accidents.
