Flying debris and large truck crashes

A lot of large truck wrecks happen because of high speeds, fatigue or the use of intoxicating substances. These are certainly not the only reasons why collisions involving large trucks take place, however. For example, a large truck may be hauling materials that are not secured properly, which can cause a large truck driver or someone riding in another vehicle to become hurt or lose control of their vehicle. When these types of accidents occur, those who fail to secure materials should be held accountable.

There are many different types of debris that can fall off of a truck and lead to an accident. A large truck may be carrying gravel that is not contained properly, and rocks could go flying on the road. This could cause a rock to slam into the windshield of a vehicle heading in the opposite direction, startling the driver and prompting them to lose control of their vehicle. Or, large objects may fall off of the back of a truck, right into the path of traffic.

There are different reasons why materials may not be properly secured to a truck, whether straps come loose on the road or the material was never secured properly in the first place because workers were in a rush or careless. That said, there is no excuse for these errors and they have caused an immense amount of suffering on roadways all over the U.S. For more on the repercussions of a large truck crash, read through the material on our website.
