Tractor Trailer Deaths on the Rise for the Fourth Straight Year

Large commercial trucks create a hazard when the driver fails to act with extreme caution. Barreling down the highway weighing up to 80,000 pounds, these trucks wreak havoc when they are involved in an accident. What might be a fender bender with smaller vehicles can cause significant injuries or death when these big rigs are involved. According to a recent article, the number of fatalities caused by tractor trailer wrecks in the United States has increased for the fourth straight year. http://www.insurancejournal.com/news/national/2014/12/23/350747.htm.
