Recently there have been a few stories in the news regarding accidents involving trucks. One fatal accident involved a victim who was pinched between two delivery trucks. Another involved a jackknifed tractor trailer that hit a car, but luckily there were no injuries to report, only traffic on the I-10 during rush hour.
Always be aware of your surroundings while you are driving. If you are approaching a truck on a highway or side street, be sure to stay out of the blind spots, which include the areas to the left and right of the cab, the right front, and directly behind the truck. Be sure to leave several car lengths between your own automobile and the truck.
Unfortunately accidents may still happen even if a driver follows these regulations consistently. Faulty equipment, low air pressure, road conditions, or impaired drivers may lead to a dangerous situation.
