What causes trucking accidents? For the most part, the same factors and risks that are responsible for causing regular car accidents, such as ignoring rules of the road, speeding, driving recklessly, driving while tired, falling asleep behind the wheel, etc.
The difference is that truck drivers are operating much larger, heavier, and by nature more dangerous vehicles. These vehicles have the capacity to cause major death and destruction.
