Semi-Truck Collisions in South Carolina
According to the National Highway Traffic Administration, there were 106,821 collisions involving commercial transportation vehicles in the United States in 2018. Nearly 4,500 of those crashes were fatal ones. Any form of irresponsible, reckless, or careless driving can have catastrophic and disastrous repercussions due to the size and weight of these vehicles.
If you have driven on the roads and highways in South Carolina, you are likely aware of the growing traffic, especially on the big interstates like I-26, I-20, and I-95. In order to stay on schedule and meet deadlines, 18-wheelers, construction vehicles, farm vehicles, and other multi-axle and commercial vehicles are frequently moving at a continuous pace. These vehicles tend to weigh thousands of pounds, move quickly, and with heavy loads weighing them down, a crash with a smaller car can be detrimental.
At times, trucks are driven carelessly or negligently by their drivers. These drivers may occasionally be exhausted from extended stretches of driving, which causes them to pay less attention to the task at hand. Truck drivers have sometimes even utilized narcotics and medication to keep awake.
