Fatal Semi-Truck Crashes in South Carolina
Commercial trucks in the United States are primarily used to transport goods. Due to the sheer size of these enormous rigs, people on the road run the risk of suffering serious injuries in an accident. Smaller car passengers are more likely to sustain fatal injuries in collisions with large semi-trucks. Each year, the US reports about 500,000 truck-related incidents, many of which result in confirmed fatalities.
