Things you should know about truck accidents

Truck accidents are a major cause of fatalities on the road. Any accident involving a large commercial vehicle may be catastrophic, leading to fatal injuries in most cases. The difference in size between commercial trucks and passenger cars leads to the terrible aftermath caused by these accidents. Trucks are rarely damaged in these unfortunate incidents, and passenger vehicles are the ones adversely affected.

Motor vehicle accidents involving pedestrians

Pedestrians are the most vulnerable part of the traffic system. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Association, nearly 5,000 pedestrian deaths take place each year in the United States. Several of these deaths are a result of a motor vehicle collision, leading to fatal injuries for the pedestrian. Pedestrians are much more exposed to injuries compared to motor vehicle drivers, which is why the legal system protects them.

Truck driver to stand trial for killing 4 in Oklahoma

It isn't likely you've forgotten the tragic wreck in 2014 where a truck driver allegedly took the life of 4 college softball players outside of Davis, Oklahoma. The female athletes were on a bus heading south on Interstate 35 back to Gainesville after playing in Bethany when their bus was struck by a semi heading northbound that somehow managed to terrifyingly cross over the median, striking the bus' left side. The driver claimed he was distracted momentarily by something in his cab.
