Trucking Accidents Can Cause Extensive Damage And Injuries
Did you know that large tractor-trailers — semis, big rigs and 18-wheelers — are more than 40 times heavier than the average passenger car? A vehicle of this size in the hands of a sleepy or careless driver can suddenly become a dangerous weapon.
A tremendous amount of truck traffic passes through Oklahoma’s roads, up and down I-35 and across I-40 to other roads and highways such as I-44, I-240 and the Turner, Kilpatrick, Creek, HE Bailey, Will Rogers, Cimarron and Muskogee Turnpikes.
While large trucks are useful in their ability to haul large amounts of goods from one place to another, truck drivers have a duty to drive safely. Unfortunately, careless drivers and negligent trucking companies cause more than 100 fatalities and over 1,000 injuries every year in Oklahoma.
