Not surprisingly, a factor in many of these truck accidents was trucker fatigue. Even though federal hours of service rules dictate the hours that truck drivers are allowed to work, many truckers stretch their schedules to meet unrealistic delivery deadlines.
When a truck collides with a passenger vehicle, the results are often catastrophic. 18 wheelers and other large commercial trucks are bigger and heavier than other vehicles, which means that they can destroy a passenger vehicle even at relatively slow speeds.
